Finé by Karim Rashid: "Karim is a leading figure in the fields of product, interior,
fashion, furniture, lighting design and art. Born in Cairo, half
Egyptian, half English, and raised in Canada, Karim now practices in
New York. He is best known for bringing his democratic design
sensibility to the masses. Designing for an impressive array of clients
from Alessi to Dirt Devil, Umbra to Prada, Miyake to Method, Karim is
radically changing the aesthetics of product design and the very nature
of the consumer culture. He has had some 2500 objects put into
production to date."
