Ring Stool by Nao Tamura for Artek

New York-based designer Nao Tamura has developed ‘Ring Stool’ in celebration of 80 years of ‘stool 60’ by Alvar Aalto for Finnish furniture company Artek.

A graphic depiction of tree rings layered onto Alvar’s design rounding out its geometric shape. Just like in a regular tree, which records its unabridged chronicle year by year, never skipping a beat, it records its history slowly.

‘Ring Stool’ is part of the design trust for public spaces auction event November 7th, 2012 which supports public spaces in New York City.

Below, you can see the original design of Alvar Aalto’s stool 60:
