Inspired by the concept of graceful aging, while paying homage to the near-century old trees used in the making of each stool, Tsuyoshi Tane’s Stool 60 Sleeping Beauty explores ways to capture the patina of age and experience in a new edition. By burying raw birch sections in soils collected from different sites in Japan, Tane examined the effect each had on the untreated wood. Sections submerged in calcium-rich soil took on a yellow hue, while volcanic- or aluminium-laden soil resulted in the wood taking on black or white tones respectively.

Stool 60 Sleeping Beauty is only available at the Artek Tokyo store.
