Initially, we thought this was a probing documentary about the dirty underworld of sheep fighting. It’s not, but the real subject is (arguably) more important. Dieter Rams is the legendary designer behind hundreds of products, including coffeemakers, shavers, stereos, alarm clocks and the Vitsoe 606 shelving system. He wrote the Ten Principles for Good Design, rules considered biblical in the design community. Not only is this a Kickstarter for the first feature film about him, but the team behind it also wants to preserve Rams’s design archive, a collection of drawings, photographs, and more from his fifty-year career. You get the film to start and above that you can get posters, exclusive prints, and even a list of Rams’s favorite jazz. It promises to be an in-depth look at one of the more secretive but influential men of the 20th Century, so if design’s a hobby of yours, it’s worth a look.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
