Overview

Designed by Karim Rashid, 2009.
Made in Italy, by SLIDE Design.

Leave it to designer Karim Rashid to look at a traditional design in a whole new light: his creativity takes shape in the Blos, an ultra-modern take on the rocking chair. This sculptural, ebullient design is eminently practical, too — made from polyethylene foam worked with a rotational molding technique that makes for a winning combination of strength and light weight.
