Ornamentation is a modus operandi for communication, for providing dimension, texture, pattern, depth and spirit. It is a way to liven up space, to create complementary conditions, to move the eye and break up surfaces, to bring illusion or entropy, to embellish and give richness to surfaces and materials and objects. Karim Rashid exploring computer graphics in the use of two- and three-dimensional decoration is the aim of this project by designer Karim Rashid. Divided into five parts by theme (SYMBOLIK, IKONIK, GRAPHIK, OPTIKAL, and INFOSTETHIK), Digipop showcases Rashid's colorful, geometrical patterns both as simple designs and as applied to three-dimensional objects such as clothing, figures, and abstract shapes.
