Bamboo Stool

Takematsu Shoten

Like a line drawn in the air
We designed a stool with a modern take suited to life today that utilizes the construction of the "tsutsumiisu", a chair style that has been around in Japan for a very long time. The stool is constructed from bamboo; it is light, sturdy and easy to use, with a structure that is simple and logical in terms of chair shapes. It appears as though a line has been drawn in space through some bold kind of magic, depending on the angle from which it is viewed. When bamboo is dyed, its surface takes on a matt surface, making for a refined finish.
