Cloudy / Mist / Rain / Blue Moment

The stainless steel stool was designed under the theme of atmospheric nature, which includes the elements of sky, mist and rain, and originated from the technology of Tsukiboshi Art Co., Ltd, that has a reputation for delivering authentic colors and exquisite textures. Using polishing processes such as mirror surface finishing, etching, vibration and hairline, met the challenges of creating a delicate and intensive gradation texture. Despite the inorganic and cold impression that stainless steel generally has, a soft impression that reflects the essence of nature has been created.

We collaborated with Tsuki-boshi Art Co. to demonstrate new design products through stainless steel processing techniques. We challenged our creativity under the theme of the nature such as the sky and the air with a sustainable material, stainless steel.

“The stool evolved into a box shape to utilize the final finishing touches beautifully handcrafted to connect patterns on each side so that the viewer can enjoy the expression of the material from all angles. The Finegaurd F3 treatment is applied even though the material is water resistant, and it becomes fingerprint free on all sides, with the exception of the mirror finish surfaces. The user can then place their hands on it as desired upon sitting down.
This exclusive method creates refined surface texture and colors with blemish free features that can be used in various future products.”
