Karim Rashid has designed a modern pink retro restaurant located in New York that was dubbed as the “Kurve“. The kurve restaurant interior was designed in spherical and curvy shapes with pink color just like what Karim Rashid wants it to be: an organic, flowing space. Pink has been used as a way of symbolizing positivity, creating a strong identity, and to that effect gradients of pink are splashed on the walls as well as the ceiling. Swirly lines of hot pink line the side walls, along with oval mirrors that magnify the space.
The main concept of this Kurve restaurant is how to make another world for an evening dinner, ovaloid-shaped windows, sinuous walls and booths, soft organic lounge chair, white glass communal table, ceiling-to-floor amorphous bar these are beautiful stuff that gives the guests a hyper visual experience. Kurve restaurant also offers special menu that combines Eastern and Western ingredients and techniques.
The new technology was applied to this kurve retro restaurant interior space via the cameras placed over the bar. The cameras take imagery of people at the bar, and then an algorithm takes the real images and abstracts them in the hidden monitors behind the oval mirrors. They then become artistic video shows.
