Design ingenuity and innovation are at the forefront of an ongoing furniture art exhibit that features the works of legendary and award-winning designer Karim Rashid.
Rashid, born in Egypt and raised in Canada, collaborated recently with Sixinch Philippines, a joint venture between the RGC Group of Companies, makers of Uratex foam in the Philippines, and Belgium-based foam maker SixInch Design B.V.B.A., whose mantra is to develop foam designs and furniture for today’s modern living spaces.
One of Rashid’s most recent and renowned creations, “River Must Flow,” was a featured piece during an exhibit organized by Sixinch Philippines at the South Court of the Power Plant Mall in Rockwell, Makati City.
His designs continue to astound the world because of its timelessness and creativity which won for him a long list of acclamations from all over the world. Rashid’s works are perennial winners of the esteemed Red Dot Award, the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design award, I.D. Magazine Annual Design Review, and IDSA Industrial Design Excellence Award.
