Origami Kitchen

Who says a kitchen island must be monolithic rectangle topped with a slab of stone? Certainly not the industrial designer Karim Rashid who designed this for Amr Helmy Designs. The sculptural multi-purpose island features asymmetrical triangular Glacier White Corian surfaces styled to look like a folded paper object.

The Origami Island debuted in 2011 as a companion to the Origami Kitchen Rashid designed for the Egyptian kitchen company, whose tagline is “7 years ahead.”
