The Quotable Karim Rashid

Designer Karim Rashid, the man who hates corners, coats everything in lollipop colors, and is essentially a purveyor of all the stuff that will go inside your princess dreamhouse of the year 2514, says his Kool-Aid-hued project for Harlem is meant to show the world "how a contemporary physical world can be warm, soft, human, and pleasurable." He continues: "I use colors to create form, mood, feeling, and to touch the public memory. Color is not just 'is' and is not intangible—it is very real, very strong, extremely emotional and has a real physical presence." Oh, and: "I don't believe in style." [6sqft via Curbed NY; previously]
