Flying Rumi armchair is designed by Turkish sculptor and designer Sadi Ozis as one of the first Turkish metal furniture pieces in 1964. Sadi Ozis founded  the first metal furniture atelier of Turkey in 1956 and has designed and produced various timeless furniture in his atelier between 1956 -1967, Flying Rumi being one of them. This elegant piece has been forgotten for almost 50 years and found life again with Istanbul-based furniture design company Karre.Flying Rumi Chair - 02Flying Rumi is based on the frame of Rumi armchair, which has been inspired from Sufi dervishes of the Mevlevi order also known as whirling dervishes, hence the name Rumi comes from the Sufi mystic Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi whose teachings have become the base of the order.Flying Rumi Chair - 03That piece has been prototyped by Sadi Ozis as a woven seated outdoor chair, but was never been produced.
