ABC – Atelier Book Chair

ABC Atelier Book Chair

The Atelier Book Chair by Japanese designer Kana Nakanishi is a portable drawing set and stool in one. Light enough for a child to carry, the ‘ABC’ can be taken anywhere and will instantly turn into their own atelier.

It contains a sketchbook in one side and pouches for drawing and painting equipment in the other. You can then slot a trapezium-shaped piece of wood onto pegs in the open case to form a seat.

Made from Hinoki (Japanese Cypress) from Nishiawakura village Okayama prefecture, the ABC began as a project to address the issue of how to use thinned wood from forests, a big issue in the Japanese forest industry.
