Designed by Alvar Aalto in 1933, the ColoRing Stool 60 is crafted by Artek and was reinterpreted by Jo Nagasaka in 2019.
The design celebrates 100 years of strong diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan and makes up part of Artek’s FIN/JPN Friendship Collection, created in collaboration with Japanese and Finnish designers.
Crafted in Finland using solid Finnish birch wood, the seat is finished with a soft-grained pine veneer and transformed using Nagasaka’s innovative ColoRing technique. Up until now, ColoRing had involved a time-consuming, fully manual process created by fusing the traditional Japanese methods of Udukuri and Tsugaru-Nuri. Thanks to Artek’s revolutionary manufacturing techniques, the design can now be bought to a broader audience.
Please note: Due to the innovative nature of the ColoRing technique, each stool features a uniquely grained finish and therefore will not match the picture exactly.
