Entry DescriptionKnown for his unencumbered, contemporary pieces infused with personality comes Kobble
Collection by Karim Rashid. Born from the idea that shapes affect our mood - Kobble collection adorns Karim’s signature “blobject” style, devoid of ornate distractions that evoke a sense of harmony and positive energy. Kobble is Karim Rashid’s first collection with Gantri - a digital manufacturer of premium lighting based in the Bay Area of California. Kobble Collection represents both Karim and Gantri’s philosophy that design should be democratic and created to be enjoyed by all.
Featuring a Floor, Table, Task, and Wall Light, each piece within the collection draws inspiration from the universal, soft form of cobblestones. While each piece within the collection can stand on its own, the Kobble lights work seamlessly as a group to create balanced lighting throughout the home. Complete with a museum-grade LED bulb, custom dimmer switch, and made with innovative plant-based materials, every light from the Kobble Collection was built in Gantri’s factory, redefining American-made design.
Kobble Collection is available in Carbon Black as well as Blossom Pink, Sprout Green, and Gloss Snow
