Oromo Chair

Wooden Oromo chair.


For the design elements of this chair we drew on inspiration from African culture.

The Oromo chair gets its name from the Oromo people that actually use a wooden pillow to sleep on which is the original look that this chair is based on.

It has been enlarged from the size of a wooden pillow to an actual chair. However, the design shape looks quite alike.

We wanted to design a chair that has an unique African feel to it.

When we were looking for ways to do that, the pillow that the Oromo people use was the perfect choice.

Here is to African heritage!
