Ishinomaki Laboratory started in Japan in 2011 in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake, helping the local community to rebuild itself through simple, DIY furniture workshops using available materials and skills. The spirit of the initiative lives on in Ishinomaki Laboratory’s Made in Local enterprise, empowering communities across the world with DIY skills.

In partnership with MENU and designed by TORAFU ARCHITECTS, the AA STOOL is as simple as it is versatile. Produced in Denmark from locally grown Danish Douglas fir, the handcrafted stool pushes the boundaries of do-it-yourself. Named after the shape of its profile and offering unparalleled flexibility, the flat pack design has an untreated finish that lets you customise it to the look you want.
Exposed screws, dimensional lumber and a handcrafted look highlight just how innovative simplicity can be. Each pack of two stools is offered in two sizes – medium or tall – and can be used individually or in combination to create a wider seat.
