We absolutely adore the industrial designer Karim Rashid. Standing at 6 feet 4 inches he is a giant of the design world in more ways than one. With over 2,000 designs in production it is hard to pick the ones we love. There are just too many: the Method Home bottles, Umbra’s very affordable Garbino trash can, and the ACME Studios two time zone wristwatch come to mind immediately.
Rashid’s latest collaboration with Turkish design company GAIA & GINO sees the designer moving in a very different direction. Taking inspiration from the skyline of Istanbul the prolific designer has unveiled a 15 piece tableware collection in white porcelain named Morphescape . Each piece fits with one another to create a single surface on the table. It is as practical as it is beautiful.
