10 Filipino Creatives Lend Their Flair To The Japanese-Designed Ishinomaki Stool For A Good Cause

Sales will benefit the Masungi Georeserve


To honor the 10 years of Ishinomaki Laboratory, its local partner, Lamana, has collaborated with ten notable Filipino creatives to embellish a locally-made Ishinomaki Stool.  The sale proceeds of these one-of-a-kind versions of the Ishinomaki Stool will benefit the conservation efforts of Masungi Georeserve. As the Ishinomaki Lab brand was borne out of a natural disaster, it is meaningful to support an organization that protects nature.

About the Ishinomaki Stool


The Ishinomaki Stool is one of the first products ever made by Ishinomaki Laboratory.  Designed by award-winning architect,  Keiji Ashizawa (who has also collaborated with other notable brands such as MUJI, Karimoku and Norm Architects), it was made to attend to the need of displaced residents of Ishinomaki, Japan living in temporary housing after the devastating 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.  A stool so iconic and symbolic that it has been welcomed into the permanent collection of the V&A Museum in 2015. It is made and offered locally in the Philippines by Lamana through Ishinomaki Laboratory’s initiative called Made in Local.


See how ten Filipino creatives worked with the Ishinomaki Stool, giving it their special spin:
