From the countryside of South Japan, this minimalistic stool was crafted by Isao Komatsu in 1974. He sought to make an elegant and functional stool that could be used to support various activities. Therefore, he created this light stool made from beech with four arched legs to support any type of work.

After retiring, the designer Isao Komatsu started occupying himself with making traditional Japanese wooden masks called Bicchu Kagaru. These masks came from a rural Japanese faith from his hometown in Okayama. While making these masks, Komatsu was in need of a small and comfortable chair that he could sit on while carving wood. This led to the creation of the Naya stool.
