Butterfly wooden stool


- +

  • Vitra wooden stool
  • Designed by Sori Yanagi

  • Height 6.9cm, width 7.9cm

Designer Sori Yanagi's obsession with Japanese culture runs through every item, but Yanagi's interest with seating is not something that exists in Japan. Many households manage without any seats at all as it is tradition to sit on tatami mats on the floor. The Butterfly stool takes elements of Japanese culture and adopts it into a familiar Western shape, bending plywood into two identical shapes which connect axisymmetrically, reminiscent of butterfly wings.
