The 'Oru Cabinet' by Dubai-based designer Aljoud Lootah is a piece of origami furniture featuring folds, patterns and geometric forms.
Inspired by ancient Japanese origami art, Lootah applies this traditional art form into new and contemporary pieces of furniture. The 'Oru Cabinet' uses teak wood and white felt fabric to create a beautiful contrast of color and this elegant piece of home decor also features a series of exaggerated angles throughout. This cabinet also boasts unusually exposed shelving for books and small items as well as a diamond-shaped compartment that is ideal for other belongings one wishes to keep out of public view.
This particular cabinet is a limited addition piece with only five units being made available to the public. The product is also part of a larger line of 'Oru' origami furniture that consists of an accompanying lamp, chair and mirror.
