Karim Rashid is one of the most prolific designers of his generation.

Over 3000 designs in production, over 300 awards and working in over 35 countries attest to Karims legend of design. Karims diversity affords him the ability to cross-pollinate ideas, materials, behaviors, and aesthetics from one typology to the next, crossing boundaries and broadening consumer horizons across the globe. His award winning designs include democratic objects such as the ubiquitous Garbo waste can and Oh Chair for Umbra, interiors such as the Morimoto restaurant, Philadelphia and Semiramis hotel, Athens and exhibitions for Deutsche Bank and Audi. Karim has collaborated with clients to create democratic design for Method and Dirt Devil, furniture for Artemide and Magis, brand identity for Citibank and Hyundai, high tech products for LaCie and Samsung, and luxury goods for Veuve Clicquot and Swarovski, to name a few. Karims work is featured in 20 permanent collections and he exhibits art in galleries world wide. Karim is a perennial winner of the Red Dot award, Chicago Athenaeum Good Design award, I.D. Magazine Annual Design Review, IDSA Industrial Design Excellence award. He holds honorary doctorates from the Ontario college of Art & Design and Corcoran College of Art & Design. 2008 highlighted Karims largest retrospective to date at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake, in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Most recently, Karim curated the exhibition Totally Rad: Karim Rashid does Radiators for Museum of Art and Design in New York City. Karim is a frequent guest lecturer at universities and conferences globally disseminating the importance of design in everyday life. Karim has been featured in magazines and books including Time, Financial Times, NY Times, Esquire, GQ and countless others. In 2009 Rizzoli released Karims latest monograph KarimSpace, featuring 36 of Karims interior architecture designs. Other books include Karims guide to living, Design Your Self (Harper Collins, 2006), Digipop, a digital exploration of computer graphics (Taschen, 2005), compact portfolio published by Chronicle Books (2004), as well as two monographs titled Evolution (Universe, 2004) and I Want to Change the World (Rizzoli, 2001). In his spare time Karims pluralism flirts with DJing, art and fashion and is determined to creatively touch every aspect of our physical landscape.
