The Oru collection of lamps was originally conceived as an entry for the ICFF Studio/Bernhardt design competition in 2012. The competition selects approximately 12 emerging designers and offers them display space at ICFF as well as guidance and partnering opportunities with manufacturers to bring their designs to market. Vim and Vigor, with their Oru collection, was one of the selected designers and this is where their partnership with Fabbian began. The design of Oru is an interpretation of using the typical spun-metal shape combined with the basic principles of origami: To take an ordinary flat sheet and then form it into something completely different yet beautiful.

"The peculiarity of the Oru lamps - explains the designer - lies in the fact that the diffusers seem to change their shape while you walk around and observe them." Metal lamps are generally symmetric, but Oru is not. A cutting tool is used to create a particular hole in the lampshade, which is then bent and fixed in its new form. The result is a lampshade which appears to have a typical symmetrical shape when seen from an angle, but when viewed from another, the hole and slim organic shape can be noticed. The design pays tribute to the art of metal bending and works with the scalability of mass production. As the final touch, Oru is colored in a variety of shades to evoke a sense of fun and mystery with contrasting interiors. The black painted exterior is contrasted by the bright red, bright green or teal interiors.

The pendant provides direct and ambient illumination. The medium based socket can use a halogen lamp or energy efficient LED and CFL options (lamps not included).
