There weren’t major volumetric additions, instead he emphasized his well known organic shapes through graphic arts on the walls, floor patterns, and the lovely benches. Scroll down and see what it looks like.
Karim Rashid, one of the most prolific designers of his generation, having worked in over 35 countries, with over 3,000 designs in production and over 300 awards under his belt has designed the ‘Ideal Home’ named KOMB HOUSE.
KOMB HOUSE by Karim Rashid is a smart and environmentally sustainable home concept and based on the design versatility. It also features the domino hobs and ovens from the collection Gorenje designed by Karim Rashid.
The interior of the KOMB HOUSE is composed of four spaces that represent our main activities: Play, Eat, Sleep and Cleanse. The house layout flows from the central pool and expands to four quadrants making up the living room, bathroom, bedroom and dining room. The kitchen is merged with the formal dining room and breakfast area. The ‘origami’ kitchen unit features a concealed fridge and two built-in Gorenje ovens.
