Design Your Self by Karim Rashid

Book Description

Design guru Karim Rashid, whose projects range from the Trump Towers apartments to Lacoste sportswear to the ubiquitous Umbra rubbish bin, prescribes an organizational and style overhaul in "Design Your Life". In short, sharp chapters, he tackles topics as diverse as the wardrobe, office space, love life, and diet, answering perplexing questions like how to properly pack a suitcase, use colours to accent a room, and carve out free time in a busy schedule. Whether the reader is looking to redesign his physical space or spiritual life, "Design Your Life" offers comprehensive guidance that is straightforward and easy to follow. Rashid's philosophies centre on quality over quantity, space over clutter, clarity over complexity, and a marriage of form and function in every design. With each page in vibrant colour and packed with his charming artwork and sketches, "Design Your Life" is an ideal gift book - and the very embodiment of Rashid's functional style.
