Stool 60 ColoRing, 2019

Stool 60 ColoRing by Jo Nagasaka for Artek.

As part of the FIN/JPN Friendship Collection, Artek partnered with Tokyo-based architect and designer Jo Nagasaka to create a new iteration of the Alvar Aalto classic, the Aalto 60 stool.

Nagasaka's experimentation into the traditional Japanese practices of Udukuri and Tsugaru-Nuri, resulted in the development of a new process, ColoRing.

Due to Artek's innovative manufacturing techniques, the fully-manual ColoRing procedure has been transformed into a semi-industrial process, allowing the collection to reach a wider audience. 

Available in three colourways.

The ColoRing range also includes the Artek 153B ColoRing bench.

Materials Dropdown

ColoRing uses a soft-grained pinewood as a veneer, the softer sections of the wood removed with a hard-hair brush to create an uneven surface, accentuating the natural grain (Udukuri).
Two layers of contrasting coloured lacquer are applied and subsequently sanded back to partially reveal the layers below (Tsugaru-Nuri).
The unique patterns revealed are reminiscent of topographical maps, a neon pattern juxtaposing the beauty of the natural material.
