Karim Rashid’s Salone Recap

Next Collection @ Slide

The iconic Koncord Stool and its new partner Jet change skin into a very special edition: the Next Collection. To celebrate the 10th year of the collaboration between SLIDE and Karim Rashid, the pieces get a unique lacquer finishing.

Every element of Koncord and Jet gives the idea of ​​being on the move: the aerospace name, the ergonomic shape, the futuristic design. The special nuance that fades from silver to purple, in fact, changes colour depending on the position from which the products are observed. 
Next was born to give a touch of absolute contemporaneity to products with a timeless design.

Cyborg Lamp @ Martinelli Luce
The new Cyborg Outdoor lamp is built of high-resistance fiber-reinforced concrete with selected aggregates. The special form of the lamp body, with its three legs, and the internal positioning of the indirect-light LED light source, generates dramatic effects of light and shadow on lawns. 

This is the bigger sister of the original Cyborg Lamp, designed by Karim in 2015 for Martinelli Luce.
 
 
Tropikal Mirror @ Tonelli
Halfway between a freestanding mirror and a decorative element, Tropikal Mirror designed for Tonelli conveys ironic elegance: its shape is inspired by large banana leaves, evoking the lush atmosphere of tropical forests.

“Perfect for adding a personal touch to your bedroom or living room, in both residential and contract settings, Tropikal may be customized to meet your needs in terms of style, thanks to a selection of two finish options for the panels: smoked glass or two-sided smoked mirror. The matte black lacquered base conceals the wheels, for an exquisitely clean aesthetic”, says Karim.
 
 
Vertex Sunchaise @ Vondom
Vondom's Vertex Collection expands its territory with a new sunchaise. Launched at Salone 2019, the new item designed by Karim follows the principles of the others from the collection.

Authentic Living Collection @ Riva1920
"I was greatly inspired visiting Riva1920 and Lamborghini headquarters and factories. The furniture collection takes influence from the timeless quality of Riva1920 with slight aerodynamic forms of the Lamborghini cars and their progressive exceptional beauty. You can see a sense of fluidity and a melding of organic and pure form in the furniture yet comfort is never sacrificed", says Karim.
