Vision Beneath The Surface
ORVI blends creativity with craftsmanship,technology with tradition, Western aesthetics with artisanal techniques from Asia and beyond.
Our mission is to create innovative and uniquely beautiful surfaces and home pieces. Orvi’s surfaces are suited for all parts of the building envelope; both for interior and exterior applications. Orvi’s home pieces get conceptualized from the tender nuances of everyday life, starting with natural materials and unique forms.
We are enchanted by the qualities of natural materials like stone, wood, metal, ceramics and glass. We are inspired by traditional techniques in the ways we work and shape these exquisite materials. Above all, we are driven by a vision that infuses the world’s finest crafts with the verve and vibrancy of contemporary design.
Combining the skills of the past with the technology of today, this dynamic approach results in high-end surfaces of timeless elegance.
Our portfolio of collections presents a diverse menu of distinctive styles and concepts. Moreover, when the goal is to devise something truly original, we have the experience and expertise to work with our clients in exploring and developing their own bespoke designs.
Technology & Craftmanship
Adopting the best craft traditions from the past andintegrating them with hardware and modern design sensibility is our raison d’être.
In creating our innovative surfaces and home pieces, we take advantage of a variety of state-of-the-art technology and precision machinery, from CNC routers and laser cutting instruments to water jets and sandblasting systems.
These equipments always complement the skill and experience of our craftsmen, never replacing it. All of our surfaces & home pieces require a greater or lesser degree of hand crafting or hand finishing.
To this end, we employ artisans who have worked in the relevant specialist fields for generations, along with talented newcomers trained by ORVI.
Together, they play an integral role in preserving the time-honoured skills of the past and creating timeless surfaces & objects worthy of the future.
Quality & Manufacturing
Our clients are demanding, and rightly so. They judge us on the quality and consistency of every piece they receive. That’s why quality control begins long before manufacturing is initiated, and continues right up to the moment of shipping.
Our Research and Development process is constant and comprehen- sive. So not only does it guarantee a steady flow of new ideas, it also ensures that no new product is launched until we are fully satisfied it meets our rigorous criteria for durability and quality.
What’s more, every single surface & home piece we produce, gets meticulously checked before being carefully packed and shipped to the customer. In short, while the beauty of our products is clearly visible on the surface, their quality runs much deeper.
I have had the privilege of visiting some of the world’s finest historical buildings, observing the magnificence of their architecture and admiring the craftsmanship that spans many hundreds of years. The detail, precision and eauty of the eternal facades, floors and interior furnishings celebrate the craftsmen of their time.
This is my inspiration behind Orvi, to harness the many traditional techniques that have started to disappear due to the economic pressures of the modern world, and instead create an environment where we can champion these skills and, by combining them with 21st century technology, begin to recreate some of the surfaces, shapes, patterns, and designs that have started to disappear.
Our inspiration comes not just from the architecture of the past, but also from designers and architects of the present day who, with their vision for pushing the boundaries of creativity, are the people who create the challenges that inspire our team at Orvi.
We are eager to explore the endless possibilities around combining different materials - like stone, metal, glass and ceramics - in captivating new ways. The end result is a vast range of different surfaces & home products, each one intriguing to the eye, gratifying to the touch and innovative to the core.
