Visionary and prolific, Karim Rashid is one of the most unique voices in design today. With more than 4000 designs in production, nearly 300 awards to his name, and client work in over 40 countries, Karim’s ability to transcend typology continues to make him a force among designers of his generation. The cooperation between Era and Karim was primarily a desire to apply the principles of universal design that Era has been using for years in the development, manufacturing and marketing of its eco-products and adapt them to the unique vision and concept of Karim's action and thinking.
