Oru Chair by Chris Hardy
ORU is an easy, or low chair that derives a technical aesthetic from the materials and processes required for its manufacture. The simplicity of the design necessitated very careful attention to the visual balance of the individual components while not sacrificing the chairâ€™s comfort.
Materials and finishes play a major role in the nature of the design. This version of Oru is made from sustainably managed plantation oak but it could also be constructed from 6mm 4068 aluminium (anodized or painted).
