The hotel seen from outside at night
Karim Rashid's fluid style is ultra minimalist, very funky and always easily identifiable: bright colors, rounded lines, sensual and organic. Its design breaks with the very strict and linear environments that make up our daily lives. He never deprives himself of colors. In these projects, it is the pink color that is strongly present. His universe gives off an extraordinary positive energy. He is constantly experimenting with shapes and colors, giving birth to original, unique and unpublished creations. In some interviews, Karim Rashid is even very disappointed with the furniture of our time. He finds that contemporary design often lacks innovation and it's just furniture "Derived from derivatives of derivatives of models designed in the sixteenth century" . This trend may be related to the fact that there is sometimes a fear of evolution. Karim Rashid wants to surprise and innovate. His creations are in the permanent collections of more than twenty museums around the world. The famous designer is regularly awarded with very prestigious prizes: Red Dot Design Award, Chicago Athenium Good Design Award, I.D. Magazine Annual Design Review, IDSA Industrial Design Excellence Award . In summary: he has more than 3000 creations and 300 awards and awards until the present moment. His phenomenal success makes him a living legend of design.
