Karim Rashid. He has put some 2000 objects into production, all while earning an Honorary Doctorate from the Ontario College of Art and Design, a 2005 Pratt Legends Award, a 2002 ID Magazine Best of Category Award, and the 2003 Award for Best Retail Store in the USA. His work is in the permanent collection of 14 museums worldwide including MoMAs on both coasts. Despite all this, American audiences may best know him as that incredibly tall judge who always wore white suits and giant pink glasses on the USA Network reality show “Made in the USA”. I cannot help but feel saddened by this. Anyway, the Kapsule Chair is the perfect example of his brilliant understanding of colorful plastics and organic forms. As two pieces of injection molded polypropylene, the chair comes together to create a large storage area accessible though an opening in the back.
