The Orria chair is the result of a meeting between Patrick Jouin, the Atelier de Recherche et de Création du Mobilier National, and the Alki manufacturing workshop. The richness of the viewpoints shared by these different players guided the project initiated by the Bibliothèque nationale de France for the oval room on the Richelieu site. Today, in keeping with the BnF's principle of openness to all, Alki offers the Orria chair.
An object of light, soft lines and continuity, the Orria chair is discreet and elegant. Its characteristic short arms offer the support and comfort needed to be placed around a study or lunch table.
Pure in its lines, Orria is singular and demanding in its design. Based on a traditional mortise and tenon assembly, it showcases all the expertise of Alki's craftsmen in bent solid oak and upholstery.
