Karim Rashid is an Egyptian born Industrial designer living in New York. He dabbles in everything from Interior Design, Product Design, Fashion Design etc. Everything he designs whether it's in clothing, product or interiors has a futuristic flair to it. I came across his name while searching the internet years ago. From then I feel in love.
You're probably familiar with the Kone Vacuum by Dirt Devil? He designed that. Or how about the Method soaps you can buy at Target or any drugstore? He designed that packaging as well. To date he has had some 3000 objects put into production. Time magazine called him the "Most Famous Industrial Designer in All the Americas".
