The Fashion Plate
Designed by Karim Rashid.

“The role of a designer today is to make the world a better place. By replacing the clutter of poorly designed objects with beautiful, high performing ones that are hopefully sustainable, ergonomic, and sensible yet seductive, we reduce the stress in our environments.”

Karim Rashid

Sustainable furnishings designer Karim Rashid is set to open a large scale exhibition of his most sustainable designs and give a lecture opening night titled “Analogue vs Digital”. The exhibition will focus on Rashid’s designs that are environmentally responsible and eco-conscious.
