Karim Rashid’s Loft – Inspiration or Bad Taste?

karim rashids loft 1 Karim Rashids Loft   Inspiration or Bad Taste?

Usually you can’t judge people for their tastes. Same goes for Karim Rashid‘s loft that has an unique style. With curvy random shapes, lively colors and some interesting wall designs, the whole space has a revolutionary 90s design. Not sure how productive you’ll be with such an office or if you’ll be able to concentrate on your work (I know I’m experiencing difficulties just by looking) but it looks like a courageous attempt and your guests will certainly appreciate the colors. Like it? Would you buy it if mass produced? – via

    I love certain items but also dislike others. A lot of the furniture is great but the wallpaper and art and accessories aren’t all my favorite. This is a good one to “eat the meat and spit out the bones.”

    Has some cool features, except for the wall covering in the kitchen, but being that it’s trendy, it will be very dated and need to be redone in a few short years.

    Most of it I really liked!
    at some places I felt like he took it just a tad-too-far.

    It’s lively and colourful. Not in good taste mind you, but lively and colourful

    how about “inspiration attempted by someone with bad taste”?

    I don’t like Rashid, nor do I like his loft. It’s way too much all together. A few elements would be cool without the rest bearing down on you.

    Karim is one of the worlds finest. Far and few would any common individual come to understand the concept of the future. Most people are content with a paycheck. I ask you, how do you wake up and live with yourself.? This man has changed the world we live in. If you can not see past what your eyes do not understand you will never truly create, only recycle and reuse. This man is living in a dream, to create at any moment something unique for the world.

    “Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”
    - Cecil Beaton

    Pish, you with your wooden book shelves, pish, you without 13 digits in your phone number, SHAME, you who have stopped chasing dreams…

    Nic…why would you suggest that we can’t understand the concepts and design of this loft. It’s pretty straightforward. It would be one thing if it was ugly and made you think about something in a different way…but, for me, this was just ugly. Karim fell upon his signature style, and it was something new for the world of product design, and that aesthetic became very popular, very fast. As with anything uber trendy, it can’t stay in vogue forever. It definetly doesn’t say “future” to me….it just looks so 1998.

    There is no such thing as bad taste; just mediocrity

    It is too clustered and very distracting for a office enviroment.Nice attempt in conceptuality but lack in practicality & functionality thus Karim wasn’t using correct Design analysis process in opinion.

    If he is a designer, then I understood that his designes and decorations are towards his creativity outlet and therefore, its a good taste.

    but if he is an ordinary person like me, then, i would say, he tried to hard, tried too much……

    but overall, its a bit cluttered with too many colors and its patterns are not related that seems he was confused and undecided with what themes he wanted to do.
