the Origami Chair

About this project

inspired by papercraft

We love this chair! We designed it to be simple and beautiful. The origami chair’s nest-like shape is generous and ergonomic, while the thin baltic birch shell keeps it efficient and minimal. The facets of the shell are connected with piano hinges – this give the chair some flex for added comfort.The thin shell sits on top of an elegantly folded steel frame. We’ve created versions of this chair in wood veneer and laminate, as well as cow hide.

now available through Etsy!
