Float Sofa

Predictable or not Karim Rashid’s work is at least had to get. This new creation of his is called the Float Sofa and to be honest it doesn’t struck me as the guy’s best work. I don’t know about you folks but to me this sofa looks more like some kind of bacteria seen from a powerful microscope. A round unicellular organism that floats in a liquid surrounded by nothing what so ever.

For sure, I have no doubt that some people will get it and eventually like but not to me. With the asymmetry I could resonate at some deep level but not with the color scheme and most of all not with that particular brown tone. The design is quite simple and this generally consists an advantage. The multitude of choices here, with this sofa looks to me like a child’s play.

I don’t want to offend somebody but I’m telling you, and I have studied this particular model on every side and I have looked at every inch of it; it just looks like a bad drawing from an 8 year-old. I have different taste in design probably but you take a look at it and tell me what you think about this Float Sofa. I am the only one who doesn’t get Rashid’s work? Am I the only one who doesn’t like it? Please share your opinions with me so I can clarify some things in my head.
