The YuYu stool is that rare piece of colorful plastic that we don't immediately want to recycle. YuYu is designed for stacking and would be a welcome replacement for folding chairs and a colorful and functional addition to almost any space in your home, indoor or out. We can see it tucking nicely into a niche in the bathroom, under a kitchen counter (so you can rest while chopping vegetables), or perched on a deck or balcony, with no need to worry about sheltering it from the rain.
Air-molded through some mysterious high tech process from a mixture of plastic and fiberglass, the surface is apparently luscious to the touch. We just like YuYu's light footprint, its slender profile, its $60 price tag, and the fact that it will stack away in groups of up to eight. YuYu is an Italian import and not easy to find in the U.S. at retail, but it's available online in orange, ivory and grey at La Difference. This post was re-edited from the original, posted 4.17.06
