Exhibition: "I want to change the world" in Munich
"I want to change the world" is Karim Rashid's motto. The Neue Sammlung in der Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich presents the work of the designer, who was born in Cairo, from November 18 until February 28, 2005.
The Neue Sammlung presents the first European museum show to exhibit a cross-section of Rashid's work. Designs for versatile sectors are included, from lamps, games, and perfume flacons to fashion and dishes. Magis, Issey Miyake, Zanota, Sony and Guzzini are just a few companies for which he has worked. His trash bin "Garbo" became a classic within a short time. A striking formal and material language and playful handling of modern stylistic elements are his signature. Rashid is described as a "passionate designer" and his objects meet with the zeitgeist. Living in New York, he clarified his motto for life in 2001 with his publication "I want to change the world", which also serves as the catalog of the exhibition in Munich.
