Designer Focus: Karim Rashid

Karim Rashid has it all: furniture, lighting, interior design, and even fashion.  He takes his unique aesthetic and applies it in every possible way. On one side there is a fun lack of subtlety in his creations and bold use of colour (especially pink!). On the other side his products are streamlined, amorphic and his interiors take material manipulation to a new level. I wonder how it's possible to be so involved with so many aspects of design, from tile to wallcovering, textiles to tennis shoes, and apparently one can book him as a DJ too..

--To summarize, I really enjoy looking at the world of Karim Rashid, his site has much more than what I am showing now, you will see wallcoverings, carpets, and tiles that all relate to a manifesto he has created, of poetry in design and technology to fuel it.--

Here are some examples of Rashid's work:
