Dieter Rams

I must admit when I recently came across the designer, Dieter Rams, I had never heard him before. But his design style immediately left an impression on me. His design looks incredibly clean, functional and pure, and above all timeless. The above product could easily be a new product about to be launched at a forthcoming industrial design show, but no, this product was created in 1956... over 50 years ago!!!

The bulk of his design was for Braun, FSB, and Vitsoe. Try and take a look at some of his work and see if it still impresses today.

I have recently sourced a new fabric and introduced it to my shop. It is manufactured by a UK mill in West Yorkshire, and is 100% cotton. I'm really excited about using it, because it is NATURAL in every way. Unbleached, undyed, untreated... It has a raw texture and woven with a slub effect.

It is currently available to buy as the fold top, hipster, or petite croissant.
