Karim is one of the most prolific designers of our time, with over 3000 designs. His designs span the creative medium from product design to fashion. Karim's designs are easy to recognize and are known for their bright and bold color schemes. His work has gained such acclaimation from the design community that it can be found in 14 museums worldwide. Some of his popular product designs include his lamps for George Kovacs, trash cans for Umbra, water bottles for Bobble, USA, and post-it holders for 3M.

If you have visited Las Vegas recently you might have seen his design of the Silk Road restaurant in the City Center. It is no surprise that Miami fell in love with Karim Rashid's designs. The Mybrickell Condos in Miami definitely represent Karim's colorful and playful style. Karim fits right into the fashion scene with his unique watch designs for Alessi, funky rain boots for Sydney D. Japan, and Heart Pendant necklace for Georg Jensen, Denmark.

It is no doubt that I too am a huge Karim Rashid fan. I love that we carry a few of his table lamps that he designed for George Kovacs. Below are my favorite picks.
