Wanting to expose his designs to the public Karim chose opening retail stores in exclusive locations , each store is an art gallery carrying his work from topics such as Kitchen products, high end luggage, skin care , skin devices , art and many more inspirational products.
Above all, though, Elite design is about an ineffable lightness that you can't get with machine-made production. And that's what set Mr. Karim's stores apart with his variety of collections.
