Playful and practical

Karim Rashid’s new furniture designs for Italian brand B-Line are multi-functional and lots of fun.

With names like “Snoop” and “Woopy” one wouldn’t even need to look at Karim Rashid’s designs for Italian furniture brand B-Line to know they’re cool.

The Snoop is a rotomoulded polyethylene stool that doubles-up as a storage solution. Snoop can easily be used as a low table while the two built-in pockets on the side mean that it can also stack multiples, creating a bookshelf in the size you desire.

The Woopy is a small but well-sized armchair, made from a single rotomoulded polyethylene piece that works as well outdoors, as it does indoors.

A stool version of the Woopy features the same lines seen in the Woopy armchair but comes with a backrest, armrests and a chromium-plated tube that works as a footrest.
