The purpose is to present objects, interiors and memories of friends and collaborators, collecting all aspects and facets which make up his extraordinary career and life. Hundreds of products are described and commented by the author in order to analyse the evolution of his design language and of contemporary design. Articles, interviews and personal images contribute to depict the personality of Karim Rashid and his relationship with protagonists of the world of art, fashion, design and industrial production.
The volume is edited in collaboration with Marco Casamonti, who has already curated the exhibition “Karim Sampler – an edit from the last 15 years” presented at the Triennale in Milan during the 2011 Milan Furniture Fair.
“Karim Rashid is more than a designer, with unbounded popularity expressing the personality of a complete artist. His global creativity, interpretation of a form of sensual, minimalist design that has conquered the market with more than 3000 designs currently in production, is multi-faceted and eccentric, with a more than ordinary ability to perceive the reactions and sensations generated by space and everything that occupies it. Karim Rashid has a dream: using design to change the world”.
