THINGS IN MY HOME - Shuichiro Koizumi Zumi Stool

I love modern furniture as much as I love vintage furniture. Here is a piece I bought a couple of months ago. Designed in Japan, engineered in the US, and made in Europe, the Zumi Stool is truly a global product. As much origami as furniture, this stool is formed by three identical parts that cleverly interlock to create an elegant occasional seat.
14.5 diameter x 15.5h, Molded ply with birch veneer.
Shuichiro Koizumi

Shuichiro Koizumi is a young Japanese designer brought the attention of OFFI & Company by a top dealer in Tokyo. He was actually an employee of the retailer, and the owner was so taken by his design for the Zumi Stool, that he asked OFFI to develop it.

The Zumi Stool has been a big hit in Shuichiro's home town - Tokyo, and arguably an excellent piece here in the U.S. with features in the Museum of Modern Art Catalog, and 50 independent design shops across the nation.
