RIT's premiere showing of Gary Hustwit’s documentary on designer Dieter Rams (born 20 May 1932 in Wiesbaden, Hessen). Rams is a German industrial designer and retired academic closely associated with the consumer products company Braun, the furniture company Vitsoe, and the functionalist school of industrial design. His unobtrusive approach and belief in “less but better” design generated timeless quality in his products and have influenced the design of many products, which also secured Rams worldwide recognition.
