Have you ever sat on a traditional japanese stool?

I'm sure you have dined with your friends in an asian restaurant, and I'm sure that at least once in your life you have taken a seat on a stool of this kind.

 

The typical “pi shape” turn out to be - in my opinion - one of the most succesfull sitting in the history of design. Or leastwise, it helps who sits not dreaming a chair!

The ‘Colour Stool’ shows the possibilities of woodworking in great detail. A modern version of a very traditional piece of furniture has been created through the minimal use of colour in the grids and the transparency of the colours. The stool is made using one of the most advanced woodworking machines available today.

Even though it looks light, it is a strong and sturdy product. Word of designer!
