‘Design Your Self’ was the title of the exciting summer exhibition at the iconic Seoul Art Center which focused on the highly expressive and motivating designer Karim Rashid.
Rashid’s works give off the impression of a fun loving, highly motivated and inspiring artist. The artist’s dream role in life is to bring the world ‘happy’ feelings, it works, gallery-goers were interacting with the exhibits.
His designs play well into Korean life, major brands use his design work and they are popular – just pop to Paris Baguette or buying water, you will find him!
With other 350 pieces of furniture, objects, commercial products, media art and design sketches along with structures designed specifically for this amazing event.
For me, the sketches were the most inspiring as someone who has always been curious about ‘doing design’, I always want to see how the first sketches and foundations take form and he gives it to us, he makes us people on the journey (even though the final product sits besides us!). I thank him for that.
As you can see below, his work’s are just awesome, awe-inspiring and take a glance at my Instagram for an amazing video.
I found this exhibition motivational, I found it interactive and different. I felt part of the exhibition.
This artist takes us for a journey, he even gives us his desk!
