arik levy’s rama chair for palau draws on the art of origami, featuring subtle folds

 

 

 

‘rama’ is an architectural, tri-dimensional seating piece whose subtle folds and faceted surface reference origami and the japanese art of paper folding. designed by arik levy for palau, ‘rama’ is composed of a series of plane surfaces juxtaposed in space side by side, creating an uninterrupted and smooth form — a sort of intimate, personal alcove.

the armchair is composed of a double-skin construction that has an external layer of comfort giving it a dynamic look, thus making it easy to integrate into a contemporary, or classic interior. without compromising coziness and function, ‘rama’ has a swivel base that offers additional flexibility; and maintains an appearance that is non-invasive, but sculptural and elegant.
