Karim Rashid for Freedom Of Creation

Last may (I can't believe it was actually that long ago...) I left Krakow for a couple of days to attend the Arena Design forum in Poznan. The opening day belonged to Karim Rashid, who came on stage wearing a light-pink suit and charmed the crowd with a passionate tale of design changing the world. Today folks at Freedom of Creation sent me one of his latest pieces of work - the Cross lamp, consisting of shapes known from his most famous, iconic designs. I'm only surprised it is not pink.

Freedom Of Creation, Dutch company for innovative designs using advanced 3D printing technologies pioneered by FOC itself, begins the New Year and the second decade since its foundation with a prestigious collaboration. Eclectic star designer Karim Rashid has conceived the amazing “Cross” lamp for Freedom Of Creation (FOC), launched on the occasion of IMM furniture fair­. Karim Rashid is one of the most prolific designers of his generation.

“I thought to make a hyper-collage of my icons as a lit object, in changing scale and mass to create diverse shadows and light filtration, to really make one overriding blobular 3-d cross form, which is my symbol for Globalove,” says Karim Rashid about his“Cross” table, floor and suspension lamp designed for FOC. The 3D Cross is composed of an infinite number of small icons alluding to Karim’s most famous and iconic forms.
