Chair #303

—Designed by Karim Rashid

His newest lounge chair for Nienkämper, Karim Rashid borrows the monumental pyramid form from ancient Egypt and stands it on its head. By thinking outside the box and inverting the shape associated with ancient history, he has has created an exciting new chair. And fitting, since Rashid 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.”

“Fortunately, an upside-down pyramid makes for a perfect lounge chair.”
