ISH Frankfurt: Karim Rashid Raises the Bar in Faucet Design

At first glance, the Vita faucet might look more like a drinking fountain, with its upward-facing angle… Creative  designer Karim Rashid is always a step ahead in the way he sees things… shapes and colors. Rashid takes a moment to tell FashionRepublik that “for the Vita collection I wanted to create softer, more friendly organic forms. The branch or bamboo-like shapes are contemporary yet natural, appearing to grow out of the sink. The tapered neck communicates tactility and expresses a strong visual comfort and pleasure.”

Vita is the second collection created by Karim Rashid for Cisal, which the designer stated “For years I have been proud of my work with Cisal. I frequently name the Kawa collection as one of my favorite realized designs. Now, Vita collection takes that spot and is winning awards to prove design´s worth. We need to keep promoting design as the creator of change. Vita enhances pure functionality by offering a sensual, intuitive experience and reducing encumbrances. It is an honor to win the Best of Year Award but the continual accolade will be seeing my objects in people/s houses.”

This man never seizes to amaze us!
