Otium is a thought which has origins in Ancient Rome. Cicero, Horace, and Seneca write of this oasis in the day in which a person can enjoy eating, playing, resting, contemplation and academic endeavours. Otium is the idea of withdrawing from one’s daily business affairs to engage in artistically valuable or enlightening activities.
Otium Star reflects the light of that philosophy in the genesis of designs our artisans bring to life.
The grains which flow like a stream through the hourglass have now become a river. Our business affairs continue to devour more and more of our precious time. Our furnishings are a reflective pause to provide a lyricof appreciation for cuisine, the arts, and humanity.
