There’s no denying that Dieter Rams is one of the most important designers of the past century — perhaps of all time. His views on minimalism and subtle design have helped to pave the way for many a modern artist and, as such, his name is revered within the industry. Until now, Rams’ unique workflow has remained largely uncaptured, leading author Klaus Klemp to archive the Bauhaus hero’s life’s work in an eye-opening 300+-page book.

Developed in collaboration with the famed designer, and published by legendary outfit, Phaidon, Dieter Rams: The Complete Works is a 344-page homage to the intricacies of his groundbreaking idiosyncracies. Inside, readers will find an elaborate breakdown of Rams’ various products, designs, and consumer items, giving greater insight into the artist’s unique approach. As a matter of fact, the “Complete Works” collection isn’t a misleading title — every single one of his projects is featured within. As a result, you’ll find over 300 illustrations, renders, and photographs curated in such a way as to promote Rams’ impeccable taste, spacial awareness, and persona. Head to Phaidon’s website to pre-order the book for $60.
