Motek

In the traditional Japanese art of origami, paper is folded again and again until it becomes a work of art. With each fold, the delicate material strengthens. Designed for Cassina, Motek is a lightweight chair inspired by origami’s firmness. All models feature a pressure-moulded shell that allows the fabric to bear the user’s weight while remaining comfortable and soft. The backrest and sides of the seat feature graceful folds for extra support.
