Description from Design Within Reach
Japanese Hinoki cypress is prized for its bacteria-resistant resin that prevents mildew and withstands humidity. This wood is highly rot resistant and its natural lemon scent is used in aromatherapy to reduce stress. Further encouraging a tranquil state is the knowledge that the wood used to make the Hinoki Stool is a responsibly harvested by-product of forest thinning, which is required to maintain healthy growth. A seat for bathing and saunas, this Stool can be used in wet areas and the grooved surface helps the water drain quickly. The small footprint is appropriately scaled for tight bathrooms, and in other areas in the house this Stool can be used as a side table. The weight capacity is 300 lbs. For more than 30 years, Designer Yoko Ueno Lewis has been creating original products shaped by practical materials and an artistic eye. Made in Japan.
Materials: Japanese Hinoki cypress wood.
