To coincide with the V&A’s Cold War Modern exhibition, a fascinating look at creative efforts either side of the Iron Curtain during the infamous global standoff, which we covered back in September, we’ve taken a closer look at two of the show’s contributors, industrial designer (and occasional W* contributor) Dieter Rams and James Bond set designer Ken Adam.
