“Karim Rashid is one of the most prolific designers in the world. By his own count, he’s produced a staggering 800 products in the past seven years alone, everything from special-edition millennial manhole covers for Manhattan streets to the utility-chic packaging for Prada’s single-dose skincare line. One reason for this outpouring is that the 40-year-old designer immerses himself in technology, new materials and machines. He’s constantly besieged with new ideas, and so he doesn’t so much converse as think out loud.”
