This Pyramid seating designed for Canadian Manufacturer Neinkamper, designed by Karim Rashid and inspired from ancient Egypt. The artistic seating design which perfect for modern café/lounge with retro interior style. He describes himself as “an upside-down multicultural being” – someone who is “Canadian-Irish-English-Algerian-Egyptian-American, with some Italian education thrown in the mix.” In short, he´s a product of an increasingly cosmopolitan world, and as such, he believes it´s time to “turn nationalism and jingoism around and become one global paradise. ”
The description from Karim Rashid:
Isola 8´s name derives from the Italian word for “island” and the number of people that this compelling design accommodates. “The inspiration for my newest work with Nienkämper was to create an oasis from the static world, an island for eight that offers a myriad of seating solutions,” says Karim Rashid. The swirling form, he adds, suggests not only an island but also the symbol for infinity.
Ideal for lobbies, lounges, libraries and a wide range of other public venues, Isola 8 combines great aesthetic possibilities with environmentally responsible manufacturing practices. Being able to specify contrasting upholstery for the seat and back affords designers virtually limitless opportunities for creative installations. And from a green standpoint, it’s important to note that Isola 8 is constructed with FSC-certified laminated wood products and soy-based foam.
