The son of AIA National Award-winner, Richard Lindstrom, Erik grew up with an immediate and acute appetite for contemporary interiors and architecture and quickly followed suit by attending the Florence Design Academy in Italy. After completing his Master’s degree in Interiors and Furniture Design, Erik worked as an interior designer, focusing on high-end residential interiors and architecture. It was here where he gained a passion and deep understanding of the intricacies of custom, hand-woven rugs.
After establishing relationships with his factories in Nepal, Thailand and Morocco, Erik started Lindstrom Rugs with the intention of designing rugs, which evoke bespoke, timeless luxury. He prides his custom designs on a commitment to quality, and uses an eye trained on urban and natural landscapes to create original patterns and rug concepts. Although based in Los Angeles, Erik fuels his inspiration for design with frequent trips around the US and abroad.
Karim Rashid is one of the most prolific designers of his generation. Karim's diversity affords him the ability to cross-pollinate ideas, materials, behaviors, aesthetics from one typology to the next, crossing boundaries and broadening consumer horizons. Karim has collaborated with clients to create democratic design for Method and Dirt Devil, furniture for Artemide and Magis, brand identity for Citibank and Hyundai, high tech products for LaCie and Samsung, and luxury goods for Veuve Clicquot and Swarovski.
For Lindström, he decided to go back to his engineering roots and deal with a fundamental property of faceted structures. While experimenting with new software to triangulate images, he developed Korgamy, extremely complex triangulated compositions of diverse colors which work harmoniously and naturally together.
