The Elephant Stool by the prolific product designer Sori Yanagi is one of the most famous examples of Japanese post-war design.

Its clear form and functionality are as compelling today as ever. Suited for indoor spaces as well as balconies and gardens, the stackable plastic stool can even be used as portable picnic furniture.

APPLICATIONS: Suitable for outdoor use. Special additives help to prevent colours from fading due to UV radiation. However, if the stool is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the colour may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.


Swiss manufacturer Vitra’s collections of furniture and lighting bring together the colour, culture and sophistication of the world’s most prominent designers.
