DiezCienMil is a project developed by furniture company La Metropolitana and creative director Francisco Torres who invited 10 designers to design a stool following a strict brief about materials, sizes, and production costs for an edition of 100 units that shouldn't have a price over $1,000 pesos ($75 USD).
Chiisai (little) is a stool inspired by traditional Japanese stools and Torii gates. Designed to abide the project's brief, the stool fits inside a 35x35x35cm box and uses fresno and cachimbo solid wood. It's production combines traditional woodcraft with modern CNC cutting. The space created within the stools intersecting planes is intended for placing a rolled blanket or magazine.
