Japanese architecture firm Vegahouse has ventured into furniture design, using the traditional craft of bamboo weaving to make a minimal and modern stool, Based in Kagoshima prefecture, which is home to Japan's largest bamboo forests.
The Zalue stool features a black iron frame and a round seat.
To preserve the individual beauty of these two materials the seat is simply placed on top of the frame. It's propped up by a central ring and held in place by three kinked legs, rather than being physically joined together.
With its removable seat, the design lends itself to being used outdoors while its three legs allow it to stand stably even on uneven ground. The frame itself is stackable, light and can be lifted with one hand.
