Japanese designers are ones of the best in creating minimalist and very functional furniture without unnecessary details. Tokyo-born Copenhagen-based designer Yukati Hotta presents Hako Stool, Japanese for ‘box’. It’s composed of five separate parts, the beautifully minimalist and amazingly functional Japanese Hako is a simple, cushion topped wooden stool which can double as a neat, ribbon-wrapped storage piece. You can choose the shape of the cushion and its color yourself, the wood is simple, not colored. What could be simpler than a box with a cushion to sit on? The simplest is always the most genial.
