Karim Rashid’s Latest Masterpiece

Saturday, December 4th, 2010

With a portfolio full of eye catching designer furniture and memorable spaces, Karim Rashid adds yet another destination that parallels his dedication to the world of sculptural design and streamlined aesthetics.  The latest addition to the newly opened Vdara hotel on the Las Vegas strip, Silk Road is a unique culinary and scenic experience that celebrates the finest Mediterranean cuisine (overseen by executive chef Martin Heierling) and the most ingenious interior design fruitfully realized by the world celebrated designer.

Complementing Silk Road’s Mediterranean cuisine, Karim Rashid opted to create an opulent atmosphere of cultural sensations, as if by entering the restaurants, guests are effortlessly transported to a Spice & Trade Market.  Karim’s vision was accomplished in part through the use of his signature vibrant and vivid colors reflected in the Asian inspired, tapestry reminiscent patterns.  Another of Rashid’s trademark designs can be seen in the form of organic sinuous lines, forming both the seating and the walls, that fluently integrate different areas of the restaurant, enhancing the restaurant’s experience by inviting its guests to take part in its sensuous, seductive surroundings.

Silk Road Restaurant Stunning Interior Design

Silk Road features an invigorating lounge with sculptural fiberglass seating designed by Karim Rashid in warm colors that thematically symbolize sand-dunes and compliment the patterned gold-tinted walls.  Dining areas are in a form of bistro style tables, as well as circular private booths for a intimate setting. The colors, materials and shapes that Karim chose for Silk Road are quite telling of its moniker, as with silk being one of the oldest and most luxurious commodities, the restaurant sparkles with understated elegance with the most trivial details reflecting its overarching ambiance.
