If you don’t know the name Dieter Rams, you certainly know his work — shades of his decades-old consumer product designs are still seen in some of today’s biggest names (Apple, for instance).

Tomorrow, July 12th, multiple truckloads of vintage Rams designs will be available for purchase, and prices seem weirdly low. Though they’re only estimates from the auctioneers, it’s difficult to avoid excitement — see this tiny and beautiful lighter ($75+), the most famous (and ubiquitous) shavers ever made ($100+), a supremely influential turntable ($300+) and far, far more.

Sold from Los Angeles-based JF Chen’s collection, the auction begins July 12th at noon EST.
