SFMOMA Dieter Rams Exhibit
Back in August, I read on a design blog about the then upcoming Dieter Rams exhibit at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. If you don’t know about Dieter Rams, check him out in the documentary, Objectified. Katherine, Jeffrey and I decided to check it out. We drove over the the BART station and took the BART to San Francisco. We then made the short walk over to the museum.
The museum is quite small compared to other modern art museums in the US, but is nevertheless a great museum.
The special exhibit showcases the beautiful objects industrial design genius Dieter Rams designed. Many of the things he designed more than thirty years ago are still produced. They also influence modern designers, most notably Jony Ive of Apple.
I was amazed to finally be able to see one of his most iconic products he designed at Braun, the SK55 SK4 record player nicknamed “Snow White’s Coffin”.
