Ara Thorose is an American designer from Los Angeles and living in NYC. He earned an MFA in 3D Design from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2015.

“My work is about line. Each ‘soft cylinder’ is one line exploring movement. My cylinders have the circumference of a thigh. That sense of volume lends a sympathetic element to the work. It’s minimal and abstract, yet warm and playful.”

Thorose’s 5M Chair received the distinction of Editors’ Pick by The Architect’s Newspaper in the 2019 Best of Products Awards. His work has been featured in Surface Magazine, Architectural Digest, Marie Claire Maison and many other publications. In October 2019, the 7M Chair will be featured in the ELLE Decoration showcase during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.
