A Simple Stool from a Japanese Designer

Issue 97 · Autumn in Japan · November 4, 2013

I have a thing about modernist stools; they seem to propagate in my house (I have a collection of Arne Jacobsen Dot Stools bought on eBay), and I'm always on the lookout for new variations on the theme. I'm currently coveting this simple stool designed by Mikiya Kobayashi—still just a prototype; we hope it goes into production soon.
