Bye bye Dieter Rams :(
Joseph Becker, Assistant Curator of Architecture & Design:
The exhibition was received wonderfully by all of our visitors and the design community here, and I am confident that we will have a newly inspired generation of thinkers, makers and doers in the Bay Area and beyond!

The secret to true sustainability, as we are now discovering some 50 years on from 606’s launch is in longevity, durability, and flexibility – all of which can be achieved through careful thought and reductionist design.
