Karim Rashid designs Karan kitchen for Rastelli
The wide catalogue offers many different compositions, making Karan a versatile and multifaceted model
Contemporary design, essential volumes, fine materials and colours that suggest freshness; Karan kitchen, designed by Karim Rashid for Rastelli, is an invitation to enjoy the most familiar place of the house, surrounded by an essential form of beauty.
As a versatile and multifaceted model, Karan meets different needs, whether dictated by taste, style, or housing needs. The wide catalogue offers very different compositions, with islands now characterised by sinuous and ergonomic lines, now more rational and rigorous. Among the many options, however, it is also possible to design more traditional projects, customising the kitchen with modules, wall cabinets and peninsulas.
This is the case of the glass composition, in which the extremely minimal style is enhanced by original colour tones. The wall unit is composed of a series of modules and wall cabinets with aluminium and Alucobond framed matt doors; the white of the modules and the light green of the wall cabinets create a delicate contrast that 'lights up' the sobriety of the forms. The white Corian worktop, is interrupted only to make room for the hobs and the sink; the snack table in wood quercia, also useful as a dining table, creates a peninsula with a spacious module, providing a countertop as well as a storage compartment. The composition is completed by a wardrobe with coplanar sliding doors in matt lacquered white – in which the columns for household appliances and a stainless steel pull-out table are hidden – and the wall system, always in matt white PET, perfect to create continuity between the kitchen and the living area.
Even in its simplest and most essential version, Karan preserves its strong visual impact, showing its ability to renew itself and to adapt to the market needs, as well as to the luxury sector, in which Rastelli’s brand is positioned.
