Seems like there’s a ton of stuff going on around Dieter Rams and his leg­endary work.

There’s the “Less and More — The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams” exhibit at the Design Museum in London.

To coin­cide with the event, a book with the same name will be released by Gestal­ten this month which fea­tures all of Rams’ prod­ucts as well as selected sketches and mod­els. They also have a video inter­view with Rams on their website.

The excel­lent design agency Bib­lio­theque has cre­ated two stun­ning posters ded­i­cated to Rams’ legacy. The first, which is pic­tured here, is titled “Dieter Rams’ Ten Prin­ci­ples” and fea­tures his ten prin­ci­ples for good design. They were com­mis­sioned by Vitsœ to cre­ate the poster, which is cur­rently avail­able on their site.

The sec­ond lovely poster they designed is titled “Dieter Rams T1000″ and fea­tures an illus­tra­tion of the Braun T1000 short­wave receiver. It will be screen printed and should be avail­able this week.

And finally we have the ret­ro­spec­tive book “BRAUN – Fifty Years of Design and Inno­va­tion” that cel­e­brates 50 years of the Braun brand. The book is slated to be released in 2010 but you can pre-order it now through Amazon.

Wheew! That was a lot! Enjoy.
