EGIZIA + KARIM RASHID
Egizia has collaborated with the high-spirited designer, Egyptian born but Canadian by adoption, Karim Rashid to bring us two new collections that push forward and expand the candles and spaces fragrances world, but with the unique touch of the artist.
“Candles and Home Fragrances”: sinuous shapes and uorescent colors blend together, guiding us through a delicate sensorial and visual itinerary into a world full of fresh and light fragrances.
“Static” collection”: the light and thin silver inlay make all the vases perfectly able to decorate and light up any space, with personality and freshness.
“Egizia has given me the opportunity to touch the world with my contemporary hieroglyphics, my icons, symbols, optical patterns and digitally inspired decoration with their beautiful glass and hand-made precise serigraphy. To bring meaning to decoration is to bring signi cance and relationships between our objects and our lives. I feel some beautiful connection with my Egyptian heritage and with Egizia as a symbolic marriage of our love for the new contemporary decorated landscape.” Karim.
When asked to define his work, Jerusalem born and Paris based, Dan answers:
“Definitions are our limits; I would like to consider myself as an explorer and adventurer.
The amazing thing about design is that everything is possible - dreams can be translated, abstracted and carried out; raw material gets personality, movement and a new life.
The continuous quest toward new shapes, volumes, techniques, hidden places, new inspiration and the inevitable insisting on perfection are who I am, my DNA.
These are the reasons for my deep love to design, the ability to keep on a journey of an endless quest.”
