Three-sized Nested Utility Stools
Three-sized nested stools covered by persimmon tannin dyed washi paper
This is a set of cylindrical stools in three different sizes. The nested structure saves storage space. When guests visit unexpectedly, those stools can serve as a chair or a table, which is very useful. “Persimmon tannin” is made by crushing young persimmon (bitter persimmon) and fermenting the squeezed juice. It is said that persimmon tannin was used as a coating material due to its water/corrosion proof properties since the Heian era. Recently, it has been found to detoxify formaldehyde that is diffused in a room, becoming known as an effective measure for sick building syndrome. Natural materials are finished with traditional Japanese persimmon tannin. It provides warmth and various effects for your life.
