International design star Karim Rashid knows few bounds. Industrial designer, graphic designer, interior designer, … his dna has effected brands and their products we live with and reach for daily. Samsung, Artemide, Alessi, Umbra, Method, as just a few. His influence on design is phenomenal, profound, his mark is recognizable, iconic.
Jimini, as this two piece cream and sugar duo (numbers 6107 and 6108) are known, was designed by Karim Rashid for Nambe Studio, in 1994, prior to his commission for Alessi. Made of the trademark Nambe alloy, food safe, easily cleaned, and maintained. Nambe is a foundry near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since 1951Nambe has been known for its sandcast, handcrafted and finished artisan process. No two pieces are exactly alike. They exude casual luxury with their trademark alloy finish and functionality.
The pieces are in very good to excellent vintage condition. Difficult to find, if not rare, they are highly collectible as Nambe coupled with Karim Rashid design affiliation.
