Ora-Gami by Ora-Ito

Designed by Ora-Ïto
Following his already established Ora-Ïto signature, playfully named Ora-Gami chair with its unique armchair inspired shape looks as if sus­pend­ed in air. For more of this polyéthurane chair and designers description continue after the jump:


Break­ing all of the estab­lished codes, the po­lyurethane ORA-GA­MI armchair, true icon of the col­lec­tion, is char­ac­terised by the pu­ri­ty of its line and its graph­ic vol­ume in­spired by the orig­i­nal shape of the armchair. As if sus­pend­ed in air, it is the re­sult of a true tech­ni­cal feat. Made from a sin­gle sheet fold­ed and worked by bend­ing, the armchair and its footrest, al­ready a per­fect­ly ge­o­met­ric cult shape, ap­pear to le­v­i­tate due to a full-size fake base rigid­i­fied by a vis­i­ble frame. Th­ese time­less er­go­nomics play on the mix of rigid­i­ty and sup­ple­ness, and char­ac­terise the vi­sio­nary ges­ture of ORA-ITO. Satin fin­ished in black or white, the in­side is made of Kva­drat fab­rics (wide choice of in­ter­nal fab­rics).
