Oru Chair

The Oru Chair is part of the “The Oru Series”; a collection of geometric furniture and decorative objects which take inspiration from origami forms. The name “Oru” originates from the Japanese words “To Fold”, and the idea behind the designs is to show that folding a flat, 2-dimensional sheet can create aesthetically appealing functional 3-dimensional forms. The products, with their faceted design looking like complex folds but with sophisticated simplicity, are a modern interpretation of an ancient form of art.
