Ishinomaki stool

Keiji Ashizawa | Ishinomaki Laboratory

Ishinomaki Laboratory is a community workshop established by designers in the wake of the 2011 tsunami.

The Ishinomaki stool has been specially designed at their furniture-making workshop for locals and primary school students in collaboration with Herman Miller. Members at Ishinomaki Laboratory examined what was missing in temporary housing in the area, and they found that a step stool or chair for wearing shoes in the entrance of houses was needed. Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, the Ishinomaki stool represents perfectly the Compact Outdoors concept of Ishinomaki Laboratory.

Made from Red Cedar. Suitable for outdoor use.

Started in 2011 as a community workshop within the post-Tohoku earthquake and tsunami landscape, the Ishinomaki Laboratory has gone on to develop a range of simple products in the spirit of do-it-yourself. Their collection includes specially commissioned products from designers and architects including project founder Keiji Ashizawa, Tomoko Azumi, Fabien Cappello, Torafu Architects, Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad, Taiji Fujimori, Tomás Alonso, Shigeichiro Takeuchi and Julian Patterson.

In 2017, SCP began manufacturing Ishinomaki’s furniture at their factory in Norfolk, UK, using the same materials and techniques as were used in the very beginning.
