Karim Rashid to Lecture at the University of Pennsylvania

Award-winning designer Karim Rashid will join PennDesign on Monday, March 28th as part of the Integrated Product Design Lecture Series. Labeled as one of the most prolific designers of his generation, Karim Rashid is known for designing the ubiquitous Garbo waste can and Oh Chair for Umbra, interiors such as the Morimoto restaurant, Philadelphia and Semiramis hotel, Athens and exhibitions for Deutsche Bank and Audi.

This event is free and open to the public; however, tickets are required for admission so register NOW!

Karim has collaborated with clients to create democratic design for Method and Dirt Devil, furniture for Artemide and Magis, brand identity for Citibank and Hyundai, high tech products for LaCie and Samsung, and luxury goods for Veuve Clicquot and Swarovski, to name a few.

Karim’s work is featured in 20 permanent collections and he exhibits art in galleries world wide. Karim is a perennial winner of the Red Dot award, Chicago Athenaeum Good Design award, I.D. Magazine Annual Design Review, IDSA Industrial Design Excellence award.

As he says: “Design is not about solving problems, but about a rigorous beautification of our built environments. Design is about the betterment of our lives poetically, aesthetically, experientially, sensorially, and emotionally.”

This event is made possible through the generous support of Lisa Roberts and David Seltzer and the Integrated Product Design Lecture Series Fund.
