Designer New York Kitchens: Karim Rashid’s latest products for Cielo’s Karim Collection

Karim Rashid’s latest design for Cielo is full of shapely character…

Cielo has added new products to its Karim Collection, the range of designs commissioned by the Italian bathroom brand from international designer Karim Rashid.

Following his Amedeo freestanding washbasin and Tattoo shower tray, Rashid has created the Cubika washbasins and bathroom fixtures. The charismatic Cairo-born, New York-based designer focused his creative inspiration on designing pieces with a powerful, versatile personality, taking a functional approach to their design. Cielo says the resulting products are high quality, affordable, and suited to all kinds of settings.

The manufacturer says that Cubika’s greatest strengths are its original design and the comfort of its ample proportions. It adds that these values ensure it very much fit the brand’s quintessentially Italian style and quality which harnesses both new technology and traditional manufacturing skills in its production techniques.

Cubika includes a suspended toilet and bidet, with clean lines and large volume, along with two washbasins (120cm or 140cm) designed to be installed wall-hung or semi-recessed, featuring an elegantly organic form and a large basin.
