Karim Rashid is a 1960s Egyptian industrial designer with a prolific career behind him who recently made his timeless collection of glasses and utensils for Krosno. The collection has been called Sakred and goes to form the first series within the new sub-brand Krosno D’sign, the manufacturer of glass items that invites “best-known creators of global design” to work this material in a creative way.
Rashid’s designs are minimal and geometric, and they characterize objects with a strongly squared cut, combining shapes in various ways to transform a series of everyday tools into ornaments. As the artist states:
“I believe in simplicity, and above all in the functional and democratic objects of everyday life”.
The set also consists of a carafe, two bowls, and vases of different sizes, a candelabra and a cake plate with a lid, although the highlight is the glasses, including those specific for wine, champagne, and cocktails. Each item has been designed giving the right balance between design and functionality and presents vibrant colors such as green, yellow, blue, pink and purple. All the photos were taken by Tomek Albin.
