Hono Stool

Uhuru Design

The Hono Stool started with our rediscovery of Shou Sugi Ban, an ancient Japanese burning technique that preserves wood through charring. Inspired by the method’s resulting rich color depth, authentic texture, and it’s traditional use to weather-proof wood, we adapted the application to be environmentally safe and durable.

Stools are meticulously hand-charred, then finished with a non-toxic clear coat. Our Hono Stools showcase the narrative of this ancient method and highlight one of the earliest methods of wood preservation.
