Categories: Art + Graphics

What could you answer to the one who says you 'I want people to love furniture the way they love
clothing'? I guess you would say that it's sound interesting, but how furniture could be chosen the same way as the clothing?

The first man who not only give the answer but also created furniture that really could serve people as clothing was designer Karim Rashid. This amazing guy was born in Cairo, Egypt. He spent his youth in England and Canada. Later he studied and worked in Italy and U.S. Rashid's works exhibited at major museums in New York, San Francisco, Montreal, London, Chicago and Tokyo. He created furniture for many countries all over the world.
