Hinoki stool - single

€ 159

Please contact for information

Designed by Jasper Morrison and Wataru Kumano - an East meets West design dream team - in their own words "this Stool is all about distance. Human, product, and space would naturally connect with pleasant distance by the friendly shape and pure hinoki material". Precisely hand-made by local artisans with sustainably harvested hinoki wood from Higashi-Shirakawa in Gifu, a durable and scented wood traditionally used in the construction of Japanese temples, it exemplifies Jasper Morrison "Super Normal" design approach and it is supplied as an easy self-assembly kit (eventually with glue, not included). The aim of this project, founded by renowned musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, is to re-establish a connection between urban city and local forests, promoting a responsible use of local woods, preserving them, while sustaining the creation of wood items to use and cherish every day. To this end, a portion of each sale goes towards funding Japanese forests conservation. Once assembled, it measures 33x76,5x40,5cm. Hinoki wood. Solid, sleek, comfortable and very Japanese in style: an amazing design accomplishment to enjoy every day for a long time, as all best things. 43 cm x 35 cm x 10 cm
