This exhibition is amazing, incredible and very interesting because it shows everything Jonathan Ives has ever designed for Apple. But not only all the products we love are there, there are also products from Dieter Rams in the exhibition, who obviously is one of the largest influences for Ives. Have a look at the product that looks like an iPod (but is 60 years old!) or loudspeakers that remind of the current iMac. Even the iPhone 4s "design-brother" (a 60 years old black radio) can be found there! Whoever can not be at the exhibition (it is in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, Germany) can now at least walk through the exhibition virtually.
