The business program of the INNOPROM Ural International Exhibition of Industry and Innovations (July 12-15, Ekaterinburg) will be the platform for the Industrial Design Forum to be attended by Karim Rashid – the world’s most successful form and interior design.
His works have directly influenced development of many trends of today’s designer ideas. Mr. Rashid is the winner of dozens of the most prestigious awards; he has put into production more than 2,500 developments, including design projects of furniture, dishware, fashion accessories, package, fittings, light fittings as well interiors, installations and other architectural projects. In his work, Karim Rashid demonstrates interest not only to creation of individual items or space design, but living space design as a whole.
“Do not limit your possibilities with a particular speciality – specialize in life as a whole”, says one of the 50 commandments drawn up by the designer. His main motto is far from being modest – I want to change the world”. Karim Rashid is a juror of the most prestigious international contests; he lectures in the University of Arts of Philadelphia, Pratt Institute, School of Design of Rhode Island and College of Arts of Ontario.
