Bamboo is a traditional material of the East, and is often recognised as a cultural symbol. It has been used for domestic objects and furniture since ancient times. When sitting on a bamboo chair, one can feel the craft that has been handed down for generations and sense the marvellous texture of nature.
Bamboo Cell is a stool with bamboo legs and a polyester resin seat, into which the legs have been set along with and a number of bamboo rings. The design of the seat is suggestive of the densely packed cells of a piece of bamboo, which are evident when the plant is viewed under a microscope. The hollowness of the legs is expressed on the seat, and this feature also makes the stool easy to grab and pick up. The pattern of bamboo pieces enhances the strength of the moulded resin. The stool could easily be mass-produced, but each specimen would be unique.
