Banba Stool & Banana Seat from Tomita Design


Banba design by Tomita Kazuhiko on 2oo7 for Arcade, Italy is the stool that looks like a planter box for balcony or pool-side where it does look ideal for. The volumized fabric on top is comfortable + useful to pick up the lid.

I actually love the sketches for 'Banana' .'> but the seat doesn't look bad either. The 'Banana' which is weaved in double layered organic fine rattan, grabs smoothly on the weight of the person seating on it.

Note: I do hope that i could get more information on this 2 lovely products.')
