BoConcept first worked with Karim in 2012 for the Red Dot and Good Design awarded Ottawa collection. He has since created the reconfigurable Ottawa sofa; which also garnered a Good Design and iF Design award in 2018. In 2019, the collaboration continues with Chelsea – a minimal yet emotive collection comprising 2.5-seater sofa, matching chair, plus wall, floor-standing and pendant lamps.
The Chelsea collection epitomizes Karim’s unmistakable design language of fluid organic forms. More than aesthetic, Karim’s decision to remove hard surfaces and sharp edges creates visual and tactile comfort and an arresting sense of calm – attributes the designer believes are vital in the compact- living settings that are Chelsea’s inspiration.
“Chelsea has this notion of being urban in small living spaces, but still retaining a sense of high-quality, luxury and craftsmanship,” says Rashid.
The Chelsea sofa and chair are crafted using cold-cure foam over a steel frame and high-quality springs.
