Karaca introduces Karaca X Chalayan, a limited-edition collaboration with designer Hussein Chalayan
Launching at Design London | 21.09.22
Karaca, the first homeware brand in the world to craft dinnerware from ground fine pearl, will be showcasing its Karaca X Chalayan collection at Design London on 21-24 September 2022 (Stand D32).
Homeware brand, Karaca, has collaborated with the globally renowned designer Hussein Chalayan to create a limited-edition range of architecturally inspired tableware. With a sculptural, minimalist aesthetic, and crafted from fine pearl, this exciting new collection of dinner and breakfast sets is a world first. Karaca X Chalayan is launching at Design London on 21-24 September 2022.
Comprising two six-piece sets, for dinner and breakfast, the collection’s elegant, yet simple designs cater for today’s lifestyle choices.
The Digital Pearl single dinnerware set, made from ground pearl, exhibits Chalayan’s artistic vision. Each piece stacks together perfectly to create an eye-catching pyramid, that’s both functional and contemporary. Furthermore, it’s irresistible to hosts looking to add a touch of playful performance to their dinner table.
The Poly Breakfast set, made from porcelain and in white, black, and beige, reflects Chalayan’s modern perspective. The concentric circles allow plates and cups to be linked with one another in different ways, giving consumers the creative freedom to shape their breakfast table according to taste.
Hussein Chalayan notes: “Our idea with this collection was to foster a playful and interactive relationship between the user and the form. The Digital Pearl set can be used vertically where the plates and cups overlap to form a pyramid shape. Setting the pyramid on your table adds an architectural, graphic dimension to your dining experience. Meanwhile, The Poly Breakfast set is an interweaved collection. The products can be combined and displayed in a multitude of ways, each time creating different shapes and forms depending on the preference of the individual”.
Fatih Karaca, CEO of Karaca, comments: “We are delighted to collaborate with Hussein Chalayan in executing his vision for this elegant tableware collection for Karaca. The collection embodies Chalayan’s minimalist approach to design, augmented by his feel for fashion, art, and architecture. As a world first for using fine pearl in dinnerware, we look forward to showcasing the collection at the upcoming Design London.”
Karaca X Chalayan was awarded Best Tableware at the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2022.
The Karaca X Chalayan collection is now available at karaca.uk and soon will be available at Karaca’s first UK store, launching in London’s Islington Square this November.
Karaca will be exhibiting Karaca X Chalayan at Design London on 21-24 September 2022, at stand D32 in the Pavilion.
