Product description

Review

"Shines by painting a refreshingly realistic picture of the design process... The easiest way to describe Mr. Rams’s impact on design is to say that he made Braun the “Apple” ― in other words the It-brand ― of its time."―Alice Rawsthorn, International Herald Tribune

"While many of the books about Dieter Rams are predominantly dry catalogues, Lovell's book examines the relevance of his work from a contemporary design standpoint by featuring interviews with some of today's top industrial designers..."―Apphia Michael, Wallpaper.com

"As Little Design as Possible is well-structured, thorough and provides background context to the many facets of Rams’s career, and also considers the continuation of his Ten Principles of Good Design."―Thomas Phongsathorn, V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum magazine)

"The design bible from the greatest industrial designer of the 20th century." ―Tomas Maier, Esquire
