YANAGI butterfly stool


New York Bathroom Design by SchappacherWhite Ltd. Architects & Designers.

Vitra Butterfly Stool by Sori Yanagi
Available from Stardust Modern Design

We love this bathroom remodel in New York City by SchappacherWhite Ltd. Architects and Designers.  The Sori Yanagi Butterfly Stool, available from Stardust Modern Design, provides a perfect accent. The Butterfly stool's petite silhouette means it can fit into smaller rooms, like bedrooms or bathrooms, whether under the counter or next to a bathtub. It is 15.5 inches high, 17 inches wide and 12.5 inches deep. The Butterfly Stool was designed by Sori Yanagi in 1954 and is one of the highlights in mid-century modern Japanese furniture design.  The Butterfly Stool uniquely combines Eastern forms with the plywood moulding technique developed by Charles and Ray Eames. The gently curving silhouette of the twin seat shells is reminiscent of a butterfly's wings. The concept of symmetry is beautifully manifested in the joined wings of Sori Yanagi's Butterfly Stool. Executed using the pressed plywood molding technique invented by Charles and Ray Eames, this graceful stool marries ancient Japanese forms with modern Western materials. First designed and manufactured in 1954, it now resides in the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art, among other fine museums worldwide. Simple assembly required.  Stardust Modern Design offers the authentic and fully authorized Sori Yanagi Butterfly Stool made by Vitra in Europe.
