Stellar Works is proud to present its second collaboration with Norwegian designer Hallgeir Homstvedt. True to the Stellar Works mindset, the Ori chair is a gentle mix of Nordic and Asian influences. The softly shaped outline of the chair is only interrupted by the sharp fold in the seat and backrest, marking the zones that are in contact with the body.
The slender frame is inspired by the type of bamboo scaffolding that is just tied together, commonly used in Asia (Hong Kong). Similarly the frame of the chair is composed of gently curved segments of tube that just kiss each other at the point where they overlap, creating a light and organic structure. The Ori chair is designed for the places where people gather to enjoy a meal and interact, whether at home or in public spaces. Ori comes with or without an armrest and stacks well for easy storage.
Hallgeir Homstvedt holds a BA in Industrial Design from Newcastle University in Australia. After graduating in 2006 he started working for the acclaimed design studio Norway Says before founding his own studio Homstvedt Design in 2009. His works have been exhibited in London, Tokyo, Oslo, New York and Milan, and his clients include some of the premier brands in the furniture industry. He has picked up several awards over the years, including Designer of the Year by Bo Bedre magazine in 2017.
