Tokyo-born Copenhagen-based designer Yukati Hotta has proved once again that simple, functional furniture can look amazing by adding a touch of color and creativity. The Hako Stool – translates from Japanese as “box” – is a simple and effective way of storing things or resting in a small space or a minimalist large space. Easily transformable from a stool to a “treasure box”, the Hako Stool features a vividly colored cushion top that can be replaced with an elegant ribbon. This simple change can mean a lot when living in a small apartment and you need every inch of space. Five separate parts compose this elegant design and reminds us to use no more than we need with creativity and curiosity.
