Ise Stool by Summer Studio x Commune Design

Regular price $395 Unit price  per 

Description:
The Ise Stool is an interpretation of the traditional Japanese Hinoki stool, but adopted to the contemporary western life style with its size and construction.  Designed in collaboration with Commune Design, the Ise Stool is made from Alaskan Yellow Cedar, which has been commonly used for the making of boat and totem poles by Native Americans.  The stool reveals a warm creamy color and a beautiful tight grain. The wood's natural properties of decay resistance makes it ideal for rooms or areas with high moisture, such as bathrooms, showers and saunas. 

Variation:
This product is flat-packed for small carbon footprint shipping and does requires some easy assembly.

History:
Summer Studio is a design studio founded by Creative Director, Jack Sasaki.  Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Jack has earned his Masters in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania followed with an MBA from UCLA. Following his educational studies, Jack applied his imaginative and architectural talents into becoming a high-end residential developer and product designer, then later founded Summer Studio to design and produce furniture and objects for the home and business, all made locally in Southern California.  

Measurement:
17.5'' H x 16.5'' W x 10'' D

Materials:
Alaskan Yellow Cedar

Care Instructions:
Rinse thoroughly under warm water after each use to remove any soap or residue, then dry the stool with a towel.  For stubborn soap scum, use mild dish-washing soap with a soft bristle brush under warm water to scrub off.  Then rinse off and dry completely.  Wood will naturally change color and patina over time.  Exposure to direct sunlight over time will cause the wood to darken in tone
