Float Sofa by Karim Rashid
Exposing a very different aesthetic side to his design practise, Karim Rashid has designed the Float Sofa.
Reminescent of the likes of british/indian design duo Doshi Levien’s My Beautyiful Backside sofa for Moroso, Float is very expressive, humorous and feminin.
The sofa was launched during Salone del Mobile in April 2012 and consists of a number of soft components in various colours and patterns. Float is designed for spanish brand Sancal.
The seat seems to be floating above ground because of its only 2 front timber legs, whereas the back rests on the extended back pad. Float comes in a variety of colour combinations and might just be a very welcomed change in what we will see coming from the New York based designer in the future.
