Oru / home and school furniture


Oru is a chair designed to adapt the floor for sitting making it more comfortable and offering a pleasant break at school or home. Oru is foldable to easy storage and transport and it has high production viability using just a square of anti-fluid fabric (1.50m x 1.50m) to generate the entire chair. This material economy was possible thanks to the "cootie catcher", folding the paper until arrive to the right configuration with: lowest material consumption, ergonomic in the user contact points and aesthetic look.
