Icila Chaise by Cecile Planchais
Origami started in the 17th century in Japan. It means making geometric folds on a piece of paper in order to obtain different objects. It basically uses small folding patterns. The Icila Chaise by Cecile Planchais is designed using the same art. The chair is made from a single sheet of steel, cut and folded, without welds. The chair is really elegant with thin lines, but the solidity of 8 mm steel is anything but delicate. For the moment is available in white, black, steel + orange for a tag price of 1800.€
Origami is not anymore exclusively for paper. As the designer showed us, you can make origami from steel, which is not the easiest thing to do unless you have the necessarily equipment. The result is a very nice, artistic chair with an extremely simple design. For art lovers this would make a great addition.
