The sinuously shaped seat from Rashid’s own designer production range is supported by two different types of structure: lightweight, minimalist metal tubing or solid wood, which is definitely cosier and more natural. Also available in a version suitable for outdoor use.


Karim Rashid

Karim Rashid’s mission is to change the world through design. With almost 3,000 objects designed for top line names in the field of furnishing, lighting and fashion, he is one of the most prolific designers of the latter years. A great communicator and trend setter, multi-award winner, author of a number of publications, his works also merge successfully in architectural fields, his phenomenal rise has reached untold heights.
Born in Cairo in 1960, Karim Rashid grew up in Canada where he studied Industrial Design. In the Eighties, having attained his diploma at the Carleton University in Ottawa, he lived in Italy for a period, specialising in Naples with Ettore Sottsass and in Milan at the Rodolfo Bonetto studio. On his return to Canada he collaborated with KAN Industrial Designers and established his first studio (Babel Inc. and North Studio). Nowadays he works between New York and Amsterdam, creating designs characterised by strongly recognisable aesthetics.
