Mushroom Stool

Pin it button big

We spent a good deal of time last night reading Martha's new Blueprint and have to say we were impressed (we'll write more on that later), but the first thing we saw that impressed us was this mahogany Mushrooom Stool.

After being designed in 1961 and winning awards for Tendo Mokko Co. of Yamagata, Japan, it was only finally produced as a product in 2003. A simple combination of three planes intersecting, this elegantly simple piece can be a stool, but it can also be used as a table as well. It is sold by Tortoise in LA.
