Stool celebrates the 10th anniversary of a Japanese forest conservation organization More Trees, founded by a musician Ryuichi Sakamoto. We have engaged in activities with keyword “Connect urban city and forest”, and we put “connection” as a concept of this new product, wishing to bring awareness and offer an opportunity for people to think of forest. It is designed by a collaboration of Jasper Morrison and Wataru Kumano. It comes in three sizes, "Single", "Double" and "Long" and each has a beautiful shape of seat surface. Just like music, it makes very rhythmic expression when arranging multiple of it and links you and your living space. It is made of Hinoki from Gifu where one of the More Trees Forests is located. Hinoki from the area is a representative in Japan for having a good scent and agood strength as material, and has been used for traditional buildings such as temples for a long time. It is made manually by local artisans in the area. It is a knock-down kit and you will be connected with them through assembling parts. Its “super normal” design offers a variety of use beyond the function as a stool, and it will enrich your life and space. ●about STOOL http://more-trees-design.jp/project/stool/ ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー Design : Jasper Morrison + Wataru Kumano Material : Hinoki (Japanese Cypress) Size : D330 x W1200 x H405mm The stool is knockdown and would be completed by users assembling parts. ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー Part of proceeds will be donated for activities to nurture sustainable forests.
