Two Stools in One, Designed by an Architect

Sarah Lonsdale November 16, 2012

With a premium on space, the Japanese have spent centuries honing the art of compact living. Add the AA Stool to the roster of clever, space-saving design.

The stackable stool is the work of Tokyo-based multi-disciplinary firm Torafu Architects, who collaborated with Ishinomaki Laboratory in Miyagi prefecture to create the wooden stool. Made from two-by-four-inch cedar decking, the stool is slightly higher than the average chair seat and come in sets of two that can be used together as one seat or separated into two when needed. For information on ordering, contact Ishinomaki Laboratory.
