Oracle Jr must confess to being attracted to this new item from Moroso because of its name, Karmacoma. Karmacoma -the song – was Oracle Jr’s first introduction to the amazing work of British trip-hop group, Massive Attack. (I highly suggest you check them out!)
Now on to the product! This piece, from a collection called Sushi, was introduced at this year’s Orgatec. Designed by Edward van Vliet, the collection is inspired by layers found in nature and architecture.
Via Stylepark: ‘Moroso expressed a wish for a landscape of products based on patterns. Edward, a true master in assembling and grouping products and designs, wholeheatedly took on this assignment which resulted in a bold but refined collection of designs. The landscape consists of furniture integrated with rugs and lighting fixtures: Sofa Karmacoma, Fauteuil Juju, Pouf Donut, Block seats Sushi, Rug Spirocube, Lamp Rontonton.’

MicroLite by KMDI is a Class A fire-rated fully encapsulated material which can be used for architectural elements, soffits, fascias and more.
MicroLite can be painted or covered with wall paper, wood veneers, laminates, metals and more.
The installation photo shown is a design from us, FRCH Design Worldwide, for Helzberg Diamonds. By using MicroLite for the upper wall panels and awnings, the construction and design manager for Helzberg said that he would be able to shorten his construction time by one week.
