Kamir Rashid

Today’s designer is Kamir Rashid. Inspiration on today’s post came from my weekend shopping trip in Germany where I bought a Kapsule Chair for my Daughter. Kamir is an industrial designer from Egypt, grew up in Canada and now resides in New York. He has over 3000 designs under his belt. He has won numerous awards for his designs. His use of color and talent to make all things beautiful is what makes his designs so amazing. The following is quoted from his website:

 

I believe that we could be living in an entirely different world – one that is full of real contemporary inspiring objects, spaces, places, worlds, spirits and experiences. Design has been the cultural shaper of our world from the start. We have designed systems, cities, and commodities. We have addressed the world’s problems. Now 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. My real desire is to see people live in the modus of our time, to participate in the contemporary world, and to release themselves from nostalgia, antiquated traditions, old rituals, kitsch and the meaningless. We should be conscious and attune with this world in this moment. If human nature is to live in the past – to change the world is to change human nature.

 

Here are a few of his designs.
