The vision of Karim Rashid is to engage technology, visuals, textures, colors, as well as the needs to live in a simple and less cluttered, yet sensual environment.
“Design touches us on every level, and design can continue to define and shape our dimensional interior environments and create new progressive human behaviors and new languages. I always question whether the physical world is as experiential, as seductive, as connective, as inspiring, as personalizable, and customizable as the digital world. That is what I tried to achieve with nhow hotel Berlin by making a space that coexists with the data-driven digital infostethic world.” – Karim Rashid
