The Yori Stool looks like an oversized pair of pincers. Slim and lightweight, the legs take on a wide stance as though ready for anything that comes its way. In no way a delicate piece of furniture, at least in terms of characteristics, the Yori Stool boasts a good-looking form that will appeal to many. This is due in large part to it fitting into just about any existing decor.

Designed by Timothy Schreiber, a furniture designer based in London, England, the Yori Stool was presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. Inspired by both Japanese Torii gates and Sori Yanagi’s iconic butterfly stool from 1956, it is made up of four pieces of plywood that have been melded seamlessly together.
