This futuristic furniture and décor shop serves as a gallery for the creations of Karim Rashid, the colorful industrial designer for clients ranging from Target to Prada. Rashid’s mass-market hits include the conical Dirt Devil series, Umbra’s “Magino” clear, acrylic barstools and coffee tables, Nambé’s leaning, anthropomorphic serving dishes, and Alessi’s popular oversize rubber watches, among others. All are available at this Chelsea outpost, in addition to Rashid’s namesake line. Hot-pink translucent shelves are lit from below, casting a warm glow over curvaceous glassware, furniture, and objets d’art. The assortment of sleek, shapely merchandise ranges from a $5 plastic bottle stopper to $14,000 custom-order blobular furniture. The long wall of tableware provides unusual gift ideas, like teacups with angled handles that fit into saucers or porcelain sushi sets that can be stacked within one another like Russian dolls. Although Rashid is not usually in the shop, his likeness is fully visible throughout, with his photo gracing the cover of his 2001 coffee-table book I Want to Change the World, as well as his compilation CDs (NewYorkelectropunkfunk, Obliqsound); between design projects, Rashid D.J.'s on the side.
