Habib believes that the future of design began with the automatic expressive
processes derived by Jean Arp, et. al and trusts that the computer, as
a tool of translation, now allows for these processes to collide with the
rigid refinement of symmetric geometries at break-neck speeds. His perpetually
launching line of custom manufactured wool rugs is a testament to this
theory. The line includes a series of modular rugs which utilize the environment
in which they exist as a design element via intentional negative space
between components. The graphics embedded in the construction of the modular
and non-modular rugs are derived of the technorganic composition of softened
geometry and harmonic color.
He is now applying these same theories to web design, typeface design,
animation, quilting, publishing and furniture design and is in the
process of investigating
all of the means of physical prototyping necessary to bring tangible form to
his digital visions.
