Pyramid

Pyramid, Karim Rashid's  newest lounge chair for Nienkämper, borrows a monumental form from ancient Egypt and stands it on its head. What's the point? According to Rashid, the visionary designer of Blob™, the Kloud® Collection and other iconic Nienkämper seating series, an inverted pyramid reflects who he is and symbolizes his hopes for the shape of things to come. He describes himself as "an upside-down multicultural being someone who is Canadian-Irish-English-Algerian-Egyptian-American, with some Italian education thrown in the mix; In short, he's a product of an increasingly cosmopolitan world, and as such, he believes it's time to turn nationalism and jingoism around and become one global paradise. But if that all sounds a bit abstract, here´s a more straightforward explanation from the designer: Fortunately, an upside-down pyramid makes for a perfect lounge chair.

In the case of this new seating from Nienkämper, a design that is both arrestingly sculptural and comfortable is achieved with environmentally responsible materials, including FSC-certified laminated wood products and soy-based foam.

By inverting a form associated with ancient history, Karim Rashid has created a chair that belongs to a future of exciting possibilities.

When cleaning Nienkämper leathers, use a soft clean damp cloth and a mild solution of non detergent soap, such as Ivory or Palmolive, to wash the item. The cloth must be damp, not dripping wet. Dry with a clean soft cloth, blotting any excess moisture away. Leave to dry naturally, do not use heat to dry the surface. A thorough cleaning with a fine leather milk product is recommended on an annual basis to add natural oils to the leather to keep it soft and supple.

In time all leather takes on a patina and spills generally blend into the leather giving a piece of furniture a personal character. Whenever a more serious accident occurs, please contact a leather care specialist.
