I am a High Stool. My best offer's on the table. I'm not going to counter with you.
A high stool that is the appropriate size for a standard kitchen counter made at this level of craftsmanship is few and far between. Although it's the perfect counter stool, it can also be used as a bar stool for bar counters that are a bit lower than usual. I like how the foot rest is slightly low on the legs so it sits very comfortably. When you come across a foot rest bar on counter stools that is too high or low, you can tell they haven’t been product tested really well. This stool is so comfortable, Iba Takahito has definitely tested this stool for daily use. He simply makes it look easy even though hours upon hours of labour goes into each piece.
Like the SH30 and SH48 stools, the High Stool is handcrafted in the Hokkaido region of Japan. The stool exemplifies the traditional Japanese technique of "fuki-urushi". By repeatedly applying lacquer and then wiping it off, the appearance of a saturated wood grain is achieved. A thoughtful addition of a handle makes carrying a breeze. The stool also has subtle marks of the maker’s carving tools that add to its charm and handcrafted appeal.
