Karim Rashid Cuts It Close
Karim Rashid is a master of cool design. Whether its a shapely, powder-blue Dirt Devil, or a clear acrylic magazine rack/side table, he brings innovation, color and whimsy to everything he does. "Design," he says in his 'design manifesto,' "is about the betterment of our lives poetically, aesthetically, experientially, sensorially, and emotionally."
In one of his latest ventures, Rashid introduces a line of cutting tools called Slice. The line features durable, stay-sharp ceramic blades in the form of a letter opener, potato peeler, grater and other useful tools.
