Dubai-based product designer Aljoud Lootah created a collection of geometric furniture and objects that aim to explore form and function. The dramatic angles appear to almost be folded, like origami, which is where the collection gets its name – The Oru Series.

“Oru” originates from the Japanese worlds “to fold”, and each of the pieces takes inspiration as if the idea behind the design began as a flat, two-dimensional sheet of paper that was then folded into a functional, three-dimensional object. You can almost imagine each of the finished pieces folding up to a flat piece of paper, can’t you?
