The Orria chair is the result of the meeting of the designer, Patrick Jouin, the craftsman, the Atelier de Recherche et de Création du Mobilier National, and the manufacturing workshop Alki. The richness of the views of these different actors has guided the project at the initiative of the National Library of France for the oval room of the Richelieu site. Today, following the principle of openness to all of the BnF, Alki proposes the Orria chair.
Object with light and soft lines, all in continuity, the Orria chair is discreet and elegant. Its characteristic short arms offer the support and comfort necessary 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 know-how of Alki's craftsmen in the work of solid bent oak and upholstery.
A perennial object with timeless lines, Orria is in tune with the times through the minimal research of the volume of wood used, and the proposal of a removable back and seat.
