This spring we present Origami, the latest result of our collaboration with Spanish designer Carlos Tiscar. The Origami easy chair is built on a wooden frame with details of molded wood covered with cold foam wrapped with flameproof fibre, the bottom is made of Nozag spring. Origami is upholstered in fixed fabric with legs in chrome.
The name Origami comes from the Japanese art of folding paper into 3D objects. Just like origami, Tiscar’s easy chair and sofa consist of angular sections with straight lines. Tiscar has worked with contrasts rather than volumes, and the result is furniture which is sturdy despite its lightweight appearance.
“Together with OFFECCT I’ve created furniture that focuses on human values and comfort. To me, good design is environmentally sound because these objects and furniture tend to have a longer lifespan. As a designer, it is wonderful to be able to work with companies that share this view, and OFFECCT is a role model for its environmental work.”, says Carlos Tiscar.
Tiscar received his degree in industrial design in 1982 from the Applied Arts School in Valencia and then continued his studies at Milan’s Polytechnic School of Design. His professional career began in 1987 as a member of the Factoría Diseño Industrial. He currently designs furnishings for homes, offices and facilities as well as serving as art director to certain clients.

Usually starting from custom made square sheet of paper, these can be colored on one or both sides, and multiple sheets can be combined.
