Remember the unique collapsable Aperture Pendant we first came across at the Interior Design Show in Toronto? Architects Andrea Kordos and Tony Round from Cut-Fold first introduced the idea of folded furniture through the Origami chair. It is rare to see a foldable chair so elegant and sculptural.
The team was inspired by the art of Papercraft, where simple folded shapes can create an intricate sculptural form. The minimalist design features a nest-like shape that is generous and ergonomic, while the baltic birch shell adds a sense of elegance.
The facets of the shell are connected with piano hinges giving it some flex for added comfort. The thin shell sits on top of an elegantly folded steel frame.
The chair comes in walnut wood veneer and laminate, as well as cow hide. You can now purchase the Origami Chair on Etsy.
