.ORI sto by Jakub Piotr Kalinowski


Polish designer Jakub Piotr Kalinowski has created a stool inspired by origami.

Called .ORI sto, the stool is made of folded metal and can be stacked.

Here's some more information from the designer:


.ORI sto. It is a simple stool inspired by origami. As a result of that arose a product of a light and simple form.

Use of a bending and cutting method allowed to satisfy main design assumption: simplicity and lost manufacturing costs, by dint of that the mass production is possible.

That is why this stool is aimed to a mass customer: can be used in both public institutions and private houses. Currently .ORI sto. is in a prototype realization stage.

    Just think of the possibilities if you set this piece of furniture upside down…

    Very elegant, beautiful design, but it looks like it would either damage the floor or the pristine sharp edges of the feet would buckle.

  • Pretty but sharp…
    Don’t leave the kids playing hop-frog with it.

  • looks like a stool i did 3 years ago – but you couldn’t stack it…
    was build though – not renderd
    on my version already the client was complaining that the sharp legs would puncture their wooden floor – you will have the same problem.
    funny how certain things always pop up from different people…
