The Yata stool is deceptively simple. It may be made out of an unassuming wood material and take on a basic three-pronged shape, but it can be utilized in a multitude of ways, which makes the Yata Stool indispensable in the homestead.

Created by Naoki Hirakoso, a designer living and working Tokyo, Japan, the Yata Stool follows the footsteps of the impressive Kai Table. Unlike that morphing piece of furniture, the Yata Stool doesn't hide nooks and crannies beneath a folding surface. Instead, it can be shifted and stacked in ways that complement specific spaces better. In this way, the Yata Stool can be converted into a multi-layered coffee table or even a jutting shelving unit. Each stool fits together like a puzzle piece.
