Ring Stool | leather seat | TENDO MOKKO
It was designed in 1955 by Tokukichi Kato, who was one of the founding members of Tendo Mokko and worked as a plant manager and craftsman. Despite the simple structure in which the legs are attached to a ring-shaped seat, craftsmen's ideas are packed everywhere.
The seemingly slender seat-leg junction is very rigidly attached. In addition, by making a hole in the seat, we have realized ease of use that can be carried lightly even with one hand. The sheet leather is covered with Tendo woodwork's unique "round covering" technique, and it is made to look beautiful from anywhere without showing the seams. Sloped towards the center of the hole, it is a very comfortable stool.
Other than the chair, it is also recommended as an object to be placed as a shelf for putting plants and as an accent for a room.
