Prolific designer Karim Rashid presents the brand new KARIMIRROR Collection for French brand Robba Edition.
The new collection includes four distinctive mirrors each one a unique representative of Rashid’s dynamic design style. Each mirror is made in France from high quality acrylic mirror glass. These stunning mirrors are made using digital laser cutting which enables to cut with great precision, making it possible to create such complex and impressive shapes. The KARIMIRROR collection includes four models, The Mirage, The Karma, The Supernova and the Tattoo. Most mirrors of the collection use a repetitive pattern which allows many pieces to be joined into one continuous composition.
The Mirage Mirror is a composition of twenty stripes of acrylic mirror glass, which are placed one next to the other and create an illusionistic composition. The slightest movement of the stripes along with the annulment of linearity intensify the impact of the distortion of the surroundings on Mirage.
The Karma Mirror on the other hand incorporates a geometric result as twelve lines inscribed on the mirror surface set in movement and invade the third dimension via digital technology. These lines form new spherical volumes and then come back to their two dimension sketches to create a symmetrical composition.
The third piece of KARIMIRROR Collection is The Tattoo Mirror, absolutely the funkiest part of Rashid’s designs. Motifs with references to graphic design and Pop Art overrun the mirror surface and cheer everyone up. These shapes and extend to the edges of mirror, therefore is two or more pieces are joined together, the pattern can be completed again and again.
The Supernova Mirror is the fourth creation of Karim Rashid for Robba Edition and it is the most classic style design. This oval mirror is composed from many super thin strips of mirror glass that gain volume when the rare mounted next to each other, creating an almost surrealistic effect.
