Karim Rashid's Cultural Shaping on view at Ottawa Art Gallery

Ottawa Art Gallery is hosting the first large-scale Canadian exhibition of Karim Rashid. On view through February 10, the exhibition features industrial designs imbued with the sense of environmental responsibility and sustainability that is at the heart of much of Rashid's current practice.

Showcasing unique objects and original sketches, 'Cultural Shaping' presents over 200 award-winning designs. Iconic objects are highlighted, including the Garbino waste can and the Oh-chair designed for Umbra, as well as modular and reconfigurable furniture for BoConcept.
