Origami-Inspired Furniture Designs By Aljoud Lootah

Based in Dubai, multidisciplinary designer Aljoud Lootah creates geometric furniture for “The Oru Series”. Inspired by the Japanese technique of Origami, each one of the pieces is made of teak wood and the designs feature sharp lines and angles just like folded paper. The collection includes a chair, cabinet, mirror as well as lamp and comes in a limited edition of five. Says Lootah about her designs: “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.”
