Designophiles tend to associate Vitsœ with the 606 shelving system by Dieter Rams—a modern classic. The company's mission, to help us 'live better with less that lasts longer" is more relevant than ever. But there's much more to the story than the iconic furniture by Rams. Vitsœ has put Tumblr to good use in releasing bits and bobs, photos, graphics, and projects from its incredible archive. There's everything from a company holiday card to a Neville Brody (of The Face fame) design for the 606 launch in the UK, plus lots of photos of Rams doing his thing. My current fave is the post on the record pressed in the '70s for a band performing at the furniture showroom in Karlsruhe, Germany. One small request: post more often, please.
