Gary Hustwit | Independent Filmmaker & Photographer
Dieter Rams is undoubtedly one of the world’s most influential designers, and his impact is evident in nearly every discipline of modern design. He oversaw the creation of hundreds of products at Braun and Vitsoe, and the “10 Principles of Good Design” he developed in the 1970s are still adhered to (or rebelled against) in studios and schools everywhere. But at 86 years old, why does he now regret having been a product designer? In this special Keynote session, Gary Hustwit will take us behind the scenes of the past three years working with Dieter for the highly anticipated documentary “Rams,” which premieres later this fall. He’ll discuss Dieter's views on digital culture and the future of design, and also give us an exclusive first look at part of the film, which features an original score by pioneering musician Brian Eno.
