The ISHINOMAKI STOOL was specially designed at a series of furniture-making workshops intended for locals and primary school students, in collaboration with the US furniture company Herman Miller. Members from Ishinomaki Laboratory examined what was missing in temporary housing in the area, and found that both a step stool for accessing storage in high-up places and a chair for putting on shoes near the house entrance were needed. The ISHINOMAKI STOOL is 

a perfect example of Ishinomaki Laboratory’s concept of the

“Compact Outdoors”.
