Omnivore - What is it?

The new Market is a curvilinear fantasy from Karim Rashid

It's part of the decor at Market in the Buckhead W. We ate there last Sunday night.

While our food was mainly good, the decor by Karim Rashid was a great break from the usual restaurant space in our town.

Besides designing interiors, Rashid has created more than 2500 objects in his curvilinear,  modern style. I like this from his website — a sentiment that you don't often hear expressed so boldly:

Every business should be completely concerned with beauty - it is after all a collective human need....Design has been the cultural shaper of our world from the start. We have designed systems, cities, and commodities. We have addressed the world’s problems. Now design is not about solving problems, but about a rigorous beautification of our built environments. Design is about the betterment of our lives poetically, aesthetically, experientially, sensorially, and emotionally.

My next Grazing column is a first look at the new restaurant. It will be posted here in a few days.
