  Jasper Morrison and Wataru Kumano design ‘Stool’  
 
Launched at the MAISON&OBJET show in Paris, Stool has been designed by British designer Jasper Morrison and Japanese designer Wataru Kumano to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of More Trees, a Japanese forest conservation organisation.


Stool is an easy-to-assemble knockdown that comes in three sizes – Single, Double and Long. All feature a gentle curved form made of warm touch of solid wood. The curves are intended to give rhythmic expression to linking space with function – a stool can be a seat, a side table, a shelf, a TV stand or planter, both inside and out, in the bedroom, kitchen or bathroom.


The Stool is made of Hinoki (Japanese cypress) from Higashi-Shirakawa in Gifu where one of the More Trees Forests is located. Hinoki is a representative tree in Japan for having a good scent and for being a strong material. It has been used traditionally for buildings such as temples.


Jasper Morrison and Wataru Kumano say, “This Stool is all about distance. Human, product, and space would naturally connect with pleasant distance by the friendly shape and pure hinoki material.”
