Sculptural Furniture by O’Hara Studio
O’Hara Studio has introduced a new collection of contemporary sculptural furniture.
O’Hara Studio is proud to present its new collection of contemporary, sculptural furniture. O’Hara Studio was founded by Sean and Cynthia O’Hara, both graduates of Rhode Island School of Design. Sean is an established designer working for such companies as Steuben, Nambe and Dansk, while Cynthia is an insider in the high-end furnishings industry. Now they have combined their keen artistic and business sensibilities to bring these sculpted furniture designs to life.
Sean is recognized as an accomplished artisan designer with a sculptural approach. With the tools he invented himself, unique construction methods and his hand sculpting techniques, he translates inspiring natural influences; water patterns, coastlines, aquatic life and rock formations into fluid, sensuous shapes. Sean sculpts and refines his designs until they are perfect and then travels to his partner’s workshop in Indonesia to teach a small group of master craftsman how to reproduce the designs. For Sean, designing furniture is all about conveying the sense of touch into the finished piece, inviting people to use not only their eyes but their hands when viewing his design; he explains, “Tactile relations with my designs are crucial to my process. My creativity peaks when I am in the workshop, covered in dust, sculpting with chisel or rasp in hand. Touch is a powerful sense that guides me, which is distinctive in the design world.”
