Beautiful surfaces by Orvi
Orvi blends creativity with craftsmanship, technology with tradition and their western aesthetics with artisanal techniques from Asia and beyond.
Orvi’s mission is to create innovative and uniquely beautiful surfaces for all parts of the building envelope; both for interior and exterior applications. Their portfolio of collections presents a diverse menu of distinctive styles and concepts. Orvi creates shapes, patterns, finishes incorporating wood, timber, glass, ceramic and metal to the specific needs and requirements of their clients.
Orvi Surfaces started in 2014 with Sanjeev’s passion for creating innovative surfaces, with a fine blend of craftsmanship & technology. Working with more than 60 in-house artisans, Orvi uses varied craft techniques from across the world including stone carving, hand sculpting, intricate metal inlay, stone –in-stone inlay, raku firing, etc., to create bespoke & timeless surfaces using exquisite materials like natural stone, wood, metal, liquid metal, pure metal, ceramics, and glass.
Their products embrace the traditional arts, and thereby ensure that the surfaces they create always carry the Orvi signature; handcrafting to create the finishing and detail using in many cases a combination of materials.
Their 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 today create the challenges that inspire the team at Orvi.
“Through their bespoke approach & orientation, they explore endless design possibilities and create not just surfaces but also murals, sculptures, furniture, etc.
Adopting the best craft traditions from the past and integrating them with hardware and modern design sensibility is their raison d’être. In creating their innovative surfaces, they 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. This equipment always complements the skill and experience of their craftsmen, never replacing them. All of their surfaces require a greater or lesser degree of handcrafting or hand finishing. To this end, they employ artisans who have worked in the relevant specialist fields for generations, along with talented newcomers trained by Orvi Together, they play a crucial dual role in preserving the time-honored skills of the past and creating timeless surfaces deserves the longer term.
