Finish furniture firm (say that 10 times, then read on) Nikari asked 12 designers to create a wooden product, each being released once a month in a year-long initiative titled “Project 2012 Design for Nature.” For the month of July, Nao Tamura created this gorgeous stool that celebrates the imperfections of nature.
Like a bundle of wooden logs, three individual “slices” — unequal in size, variegated in grain and color, and uneven surface angles — unite to create a beautiful, singular form.
Each stool enjoys its own sense of individuality. Together, in multiples, they create a sculptural seating display for gathering spaces.
