KARIM RASHID SURF TUMBONA
The flowing wave that composes the seat and leg rests of SURF alludes to a sense of calm. It is a soft swell in flux, a fluid gesture that changes to vary light. The method of its creator (Karim Rashid) is the overriding canvas of the world for a new well-being that evokes calmness, casualness, driven by vibrant forms that are refreshing, awakening, and elevating and are metaphors for a new global dynamism.
