On 12 March, CBi attended an event at BoConcept in Shanghai celebrating the release of a new collection by Karim Rashid. Karim is a celebrated designer with collections, work, and art installations around the world.
BoConcept’s store in Shanghai is centered in the stylish Xintiandi neighborhood, and Shanghai residents can view the collection there. Karim’s new Ottowa collection is a study in comfort, design and functionality. Karim talked about the importance of furniture’s comfort and functionality, and how the collection was inspired by the city he first studied design in, Ottowa. The event was a great way for Shanghai residents to get in contact with an inspiring modern designer.
