The unconventional shooting star designs for Parador.


Ora-Ïto made headlines with a rather unconventional career path: the drop-out student thanks his status as a shooting star of the design scene to a magazine, which published his designer creations for Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Apple – designs for which there were no orders from the clients. He now has his own studio in Paris and works quite officially for big brands and companies. Here he designs furnishing objects as well as high-tech appliances, jewellery and perfume bottles. According to his “Simplexity“ philosophy, a mixture of simple shapes and complex design processes, he created the “Swing Pod“ seat for Cappellini and the “Everywhere“ light for Artemide.
