Coming up in arts this week: Dieter Rams & Bladerunner


We are very excited to be attending SFMoma’s director’s cut screening of Bladerunner (which, I will admit, I’ve never seen before). Come on! I wasn’t even a year old when it came out!. I do know it is an Important and Influential Film, and will probably come off as more prescient than it did even thirty years ago. 

It’s part of an exhibition of Dieter Rams design legacy. You should also check out the main exhibition of Rams’ work in the museum. I want every last gadget. Even the beard trimmers.


Introduced by Stella Lochman, education and public programs assistant, SFMOMA

A landmark of the science fiction and the neo-noir genres, Blade Runner is also awash with design objects by Rams. Lochman points out the objects used to create the film’s futuristic background. Set in a dystopic Los Angeles, Blade Runner stars Harrison Ford as a retired cop fighting human-like androids. Lauded for its design and effects, Blade Runner was nominated for Academy Awards in set design and art direction.
