design et al are delighted to announce that Karim Rashid has been shortlisted in the Lighting- Lamp category of the International Product Design Awards 2015
Cyborg is a sensual and minimal vision of the future. The small, die-cast aluminum lamp responds to human contact thanks to touch-sensitive controls, with its LED light source emanating from its center. Karim Rashid, one of today’s most eclectic designers, is the author of Cyborg, a table lamp with a decidedly future-looking form , It represents the most innovative and lively design languages now emerging on the international panorama
Karim Rashid’s sensual and often ironic minimalism has made him one of the most “followed” figures in products, interior design, fashion, furnishings, lighting, and art, one who is well-known for the immediacy of his design and his absolutely original slant on contemporary culture. Cyborg interprets a desire to create a table lamp closely tied to the present (or better, to a very near future) synthesizing art, design, and technology. Thanks to the digital age we have new technologies, production processes, materials, software, and tools that allow for Cyborg’s intuitive design and sinuous form.
