Yosegi Multifunctional Stool by Yoshiaki Ito

Home > Winners > #68012


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Yosegi

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Stool

INSPIRATION:
The Yosegi Stool, inspired by a traditional Japanese Shinto Kumiki puzzle, is designed with the Yosegi technique, the art of creating beautiful patterns with inlaid wood, and the Tsugite technique, wood joints with geometric shapes.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A furniture puzzled piece right in your home. The combined or nested stool seats one and is a space saver; it interlocks for easy storage and provides a unique twist to the traditional home stool. When separated, it provides a companion seat, footrest, footstool or a perfectly symmetrical twin to admire. Have fun stacking, mixing and matching to any décor, but more importantly, let it give you the rest you need after you’ve unpuzzled it.

CHALLENGE:
The idea behind the Yosegi Stool is for two identical stools to become perfectly one. Choosing proper lightweight but beautifully dark color wood for handling was difficult. A very precise wood crafting work was required for a smooth transformation and seamless joints.
