On July 12th, Wright auction house is presenting Dieter Rams: The JF Chen Collection. This collection will feature over 130 works by the acclaimed designer and his partners. This sale encapsulates the most well-known Rams designs but shows a lighter side to his art as well, representing everything that he stands for in an incredibly diverse, yet holistically refined showcase.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen designing anything \u2013 and he designs a lot \u2013 Rams tries to follow ten guiding principles: design should be innovative, honest, useful, long-lasting, aesthetic, thorough, understandable, eco-friendly, unobtrusive, and as \u201clittle as possible.\u201d These rules give him some semblance of the lines to color within and give all of his work a comfortable relatability.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe JF Chen Collection encompasses a lot, but from lighters, to juicers, to alarm clocks, all the way to furniture and appliances. With the entirety of these lots looking like they below in a grade school in the 1960\u2019s, Ram successfully acts out each of one his principles with every piece, no matter how small, of this eclectic and impressive collection.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
