‘AA stool’ by torafu architects

made from 2×4 canadian red cedar wood modules with legs which have been cut at a slight diagonal angle on both ends, the ‘AA stool’ stands at a height of 560mm, slightly above that of a typical chair offering a comfortable upright sitting position. the combination of these simple ‘A-letter’ profile components allows the furniture piece to stand while at the same time providing support for the seat of the stool. designed by torafu architects, the set is comprised of two stools which can be arranged with one another to create a single unit. the stacking and lining up of these lets one create longer bench formations, and when not in use can laid flat for compact storage.

the ‘AA stool’ is a continuation of the japanese firm’s collaboration with ishinomaki laboratory, an initiative which is ‘a place of creating something new’ for the community, established by designers and other creatives in the ishinomaki city of miyagi prefecture. their first product was the ‘skydeck’ which designboom covered here.
