I love Dieter Rams’ designs

rams22I have for decades mindlessly admired and used Braun shavers for their form and functionality,  but it was a 2007 Wallpaper article that sparked my interest in collecting Braun designs, especially those by Rams.  My first acquisition was the iconic T1000 radio, and then it has been calculators, lighters, ashtrays, hairdryers, shavers, watches … and I also collect monographs on Braun, Rams or by him, you name it.

I admire the objects because of their simple functional beauty. This is not an expensive hobby but quite as satisfying as my other collections. I hope to one day curate an exhibition of my Braun/Rams collection at a small museum but will meanwhile showcase it online to share it with all who love modern design.
