The Ki-oke Stool fuses the fine tradition of Kyoto woodcrafting with Western sensibilities. The result is an object of beauty available in Japanese cypress (sawara) and in a limited edition of lignified Japanese cedar (jindai-sugi) with a natural, 2000-year-old patina. The Ki-oke Stool is designed by OeO and handcrafted in Japan by Shuji Nakagawa.
