Karim Rashid, Industrial Designer

Thursday, March 03, 2005, 5:30 p.m.

Phyllis Wattis Theater

On March 3 at 6:30 pm the series concludes with Karim Rashid. A leading figure in the fields of product and interior design, fashion, furniture, lighting, and art, Rashid is best known for bringing his minimalist, high-design aesthetic to a mass audience. Designing for an impressive array of clients from Umbra to Prada, Miyake to Mikasa, Rashid is radically changing the aesthetics of consumer product design, and the very nature of the consumer culture in which we live today. Rashid opened his own design practice in New York City in 1993 and since then has designed over 2000 objects, many of which have won top industry awards. Author of the soon-to-be-released book, Digipop (Taschen), a book of digital renderings and inspirational essays, Rashid's work can be viewed in more than 14 permanent collections worldwide. A book signing in the Haas Atrium follows the lecture.

$15 general; $10 SFMOMA and AIA SF members, students, and seniors.
