Origami Island: the New Visionary Kitchen
Like the shapes created by the Oriental art of folding paper, Karim Rashid’s new Origami Island kitchen, designed for Amr Helmy Designs, reveals a complex design that is simultaneously elegant and subtle. Made with Corian® solid surface, this kitchen was skillfully manufactured by the Egyptian producer Amr Helmy Designs, a company that specialises in innovative projects with Corian® solid surface.
Origami Island’s asymmetrical contours create a streamlined sculptured design. Its narrow base expands into a wide countertop divided into three functional areas: the cleaning area with integrated sink, the cooking area, and a snack area. A large wall cabinet with cupboard space, drawers, and kitchen appliances complements the island. The cabinet door panelling and drawers are also made with Corian® solid surface, and decorated with a three-dimensional retro-pop pattern.
