Egyptian-born artist, Karim Rashid has an international reputation as one of the most prolific designers of the 21st century, with works displayed in over 40 countries across the world.
‘Evolutes’ was created using a unique highly reflective organic coating blended with natural stones, in a transparent UV-resistant epoxy system. The sculpture comprises a single-span winding and intertwining around itself, providing viewers with a unique perspective from every vantage point.
“Evolutes” is a 7-meter-tall sculpture made from carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite featured in the iconic Burj Khalifa hotel (Dubai, United Arab Emirates). Conceived by internationally renowned designer Karim Rashid as a single continuous tube with 21 interlocked loops, the elliptical cross-sectioned composite structures were manufactured in two halves and then joined to appear seamless by Advanced Fiberglass Industries (AFI, Dubai, UAE) using biaxial carbon fiber fabric (XC 411) and clear epoxy resin with ground natural stones to create a uniquely intriguing, highly-reflective surface.
