Dieter Rams and Cold War Modern at the V&A

Stephen Coles

I may have to take a trip to London just to see the V&A Museum’s Cold War Modern, “the first exhibition to explore international developments in modern art, design, architecture and film in the context of the Cold War”. The microsite offers several videos, including these two from white hot industrial design guru Dieter Rams who thinks it a fine compliment that Jonathan Ive has borrowed so many of Rams’ ideas from the ’60s for today’s Apple products.

Thanks to Pieter who has a lovely blog.

    This exhibit looks exactly like Modernism: Designing a New World 1914–1939 which was at the Corcoran Gallery back in 2007

    Dieter Rams is as relevant today as he ever was, possibly even more so considering we’ve finally come to the realization that the world we live in has finite resources. Good design, not silly styling, allows us to make better use of our resources, energy & time.
    He’s a legend and such an inspiration.
