This item is a one-off clearance item to be sold on a first order, first served basis.
As part of the FIN/JPN Friendship Collection, Artek partnered with Tokyo-based architect and designer Jo Nagasaka to create a new iteration of the Alvar Aalto classic, the Aalto 60 stool.
Nagasaka's experimentation into the traditional Japanese practices of Udukuri and Tsugaru-nuri, resulted in the development of a new process, ColoRing.
ColoRing uses a soft-grained pinewood as a veneer, the softer sections of the wood removed with a hard-hair brush to create an uneven surface, accentuating the natural grain (Udukuri).
Two layers of contrasting coloured lacquer are applied and subsequently sanded back to partially reveal the layers below (Tsugaru-nuri). The unique patterns revealed are reminiscent of topographical maps, a neon pattern juxtaposing the beauty of the natural material.
Due to Artek's innovative manufacturing techniques, the fully-manual ColoRing procedure has been transformed into a semi-industrial process, allowing the collection to reach a wider audience.
Available in pink/purple colourway.
The ColoRing range also includes the Artek 153B ColoRing bench.
