A closed premiere of the new “Maria” kitchens designed by Karim Rashid

Unordinary kitchens require an unordinary space, therefore, to present kitchens from a collection, developed by Karim Rashid and “Maria”, the organizers decided not to limit themselves with showrooms and installed the futuristic kitchens in an enormous loft at Trekhgornaya Manufactura.

The public’s interest was supported by Nikola Melnikov, and a light show by Radugadesign during which the guests saw three kitchens: Karma, Klutch and Volna. They were presented by Karim Rashid.

It is a great honor for me to participate in a project with “Maria”. I wanted to create something original and authentic for the Russian customer and I did it. Development of a kitchen project is full of technical difficulties and usually that limits the brave designer’s ideas. But I am happy that together with “Maria” we found a way to solve the most difficult technical problems. Working with the factory’s team was very easy. These are people that are full of enthusiasm and who really love what they do. Look at how quickly we managed to finish the project. After only eight months we are already presenting an amazing collection to the world. It is a great result!” – says Karim Rashid.
