#design meetup: documentary screening
Community Meetups at TQ aim to facilitate the development and strengthening of our community by bringing together like-minded folks around an industry to share experiences and grow together.
This community meetup will focus on design and is organized by Thomas van Beek from ABOSS. At this meetup, we’ll be screening the documentary “RAMS” about legendary designer Dieter Rams, followed by discussion.
RAMS is filmmaker Gary Hustwit’s new documentary about legendary designer Dieter Rams. For over fifty years, Rams has left an indelible mark on the field of product design with his iconic work at Braun and Vitsoe, and his influence on Apple. So at 86 years old, why does he now regret being a designer? RAMS is a design documentary, but it’s also a rumination on consumerism, materialism, and sustainability. Dieter's philosophy is about more than just design, it’s about a way to live. The film also features an original score by pioneering musician Brian Eno.
