Monochrome Invasion

Black-and-white is always in style as a timeless trend. Those monochrome colours inspired KARE Design’s new collection, creating a space that reflects clarity and freedom.

Founded in 1981 when the young students Jürgen Reiter and Peter Schönhofen opened their first 40 sq.m. shop in Munich, Germany. Now 35 years later, KARE now has more than 120 stores in more than 50 countries, including in Jakarta. KARE Indonesia opened its doors in July 2011 and quickly became the No.1 place in Jakarta for design that is out of the ordinary. KARE offers a lively lifestyle concept with a unique mix of furniture, lighting, furnishing accessories and gifts that fascinate many people. KARE thinks far beyond the norm, with brilliant ideas and never-ending enthusiasm behind a trendy range of 4,500 unique eye-catching products globally. With KARE’s concept of moving “away from the mainstream”, their designs are for those longing to possess fashion furniture with modern touches and quality materials.

KARE is also known for designing international properties of prestigious brands such as the Audi Dome Lounge and the BMW Headquarters in Munich, Germany, as well as the notorious night clubs PASHA and P1, dozens of boutique hotels and restaurants, the J-LO World Tour and many more.  From purist to traditional, from glamorous to retro, from boutique hotel via fashion store to luxury style, KARE is creating a convenient ambience for every discerning individual’s taste. It is marketed successfully throughout the world with designs realized by selected craftsmen at favourable prices. KARE brings unconventional ideas to life through precise workmanship combined with punctual delivery and professional installation.
