It sounds a bit like a sneeze but no… Zaishu is an Australian company dedicated to bringing their handcrafted beautiful designs to the world. But we can buy them locally (by “local” I mean in Australia), aren’t we lucky?
You can use the pieces as a (smallish) stool or as a table. Believe it or not they come packed flat and fit together with nary a screw or nail in sight. Perfecto!
At $150 UPDATE: over $450 (what, are you kidding?) I might just be able to get one (think again sister. <pouts>). Not today, but next birthday perhaps. Birthdays are great excuses to lash out. What am I saying? I don’t need an excuse! I deserve one of these pretty, pretty stools. Although I think in my house of the giants it will have a longer life as a table.
You can get order from them online or drop in to their Melbourne store:
Abbotsford Convent, Mercator Building
Studio F5 First Floor (next to Philip Stokes glass studio)
1 St Heliers Street, Abbotsford, VIC 3068, Australia
Opening Hours 2010: Friday 11am – 4pm, Saturday 11am – 4pm
