Egyptian-born and Canadian-raised Karim Rashid has, once again, penetrated the world of furniture with an iconic design and collaboration with SLIDE.
Responsible for the Konkord Stool in 2009, Blossy Sofa in 2010 and Juxt Pendant in 2012, Rashid has always been one to disrupt the norms where design is concerned. Each creation exudes a telling story of Karim’s own eccentricities – we are immersed in his personality and personal preference by way of his original take on modern furnishings.
Design-led, outdoor furniture has become a staple for many individuals. Something can be said for having the exterior of ones’ space match the care and attention that goes into the interiors. The resurgence of the Konkord Stool 2019 is no exception to the above. This iconic piece has been reimagined, given a change of skin and is now accompanied by the Jet Table. Coupled with the finesse of a lacquer finish, ‘sleek’ is an understatement.
Currently exhibited at Salone del Mobile, this attention-grabbing piece shows no sign of easing its rapid rise in popularity. We expected nothing less from this collaboration and patiently await more showstopping designs.
