Paperwood is a plywood designed and developed by Fullswing furniture in Japan. It is a combination of timber and coloured paper laminated into a ply. We fell in love Paperwood so much, that we designed a range of furniture to celebrate this beautiful product.
The “A STOOL” is a celebration of paperwood. Typically plywood is used as an edge product. Paperwood is such a beautiful product we wanted to express its beauty and treat it as a face product.
In January 2015, we had the pleasure to meet with Kai Sato and visit the office and workshop of Fullswing furniture in Nishitama District, Tokyo, Japan, 3 hours west of Tokyo city. Sato-san generously took time out of his busy schedule to manufacture the “A STOOL” for us.
