Fame+: A Take On an Icon

Ten Filipino designers reimagine the Ishinomaki Stool, making the already iconic piece even more so

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Ishinomaki Laboratory, founded by award-winning Japanese architect and designer Keiji Ashizawa, its local partner, Lamana, collaborated with 10 notable Filipino artists to embellish a locally made Ishinomaki Stool.

The Ishinomaki Stool is one of the first products ever made by Ishinomaki Laboratory. Designed by Ashizawa, it was made to attend to the needs of displaced residents of Ishinomaki, Japan, who were then living in temporary housing after the devastating 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. A stool so iconic and symbolic that it has been welcomed into the permanent collection of the V&A Museum in 2015, it is made and offered locally in the Philippines by Lamana through Ishinomaki Laboratory’s initiative, Made in Local.
