Karim Rashid: 10 Genius Designs That Inspire Us

“Design is about the betterment of our lives poetically, aesthetically, experimentally, sensorially and emotionally.“- Karim Rashid.

This quote is probably the moto of Karim Rashid, the most prolific designer in the world. He is an industrial designer with over 3000 designs in production, more than 300 awards and projects in more than 40 countries in the world. The list of his customers includes brands like: Alessi, Artemide, Audi, Cappellini, Carolina Herrera, Edra, Egizia, EsteeLauder, Foscarini, Giorgio Armani, Kenzo, Magis, Prada, Sony, Swarovski, Toyota, Veuve Clicquot, Zanotta, Gorenje etc.

Besides that, he hosts parties around the world as a DJ, and is a frequent guest lecturer at universities and conferences globally.

Karim is already a legend of modern design. His designs and personal style evolve around one color: pink. He thinks that the pink color is “energetic, fulgent, engaging” and that “communicates the idea of immateriality, entropy, energy and strong optimism”. Also, he thought that by wearing all- white or pink colored outfits will “detach” him from the other architects and designers that wear all black head-to-toe outfits.

Here are some of his genius, bold, innovative master pieces in the world of Karim Rashid. Enjoy!

Floo Kitchen for Rational

Karim won the Iconic Awards: Interior Innovation award for the Floo kitchen. The design is made for the modern German brand of kitchens: Rational. The concept of Floo is a simple, minimal, rational, kitchen design.
The monobloc storage cabinets are clean and seamless creating a geometry to keep the kitchen in order. The innovation hides in the Table Wings, which is a electrically- powered table incorporated in the kitchen.
