Learn all about the ISHINOMAKI furniture-making method, and make your own

The ISHINOMAKI STOOL was specially designed at a series of furniture-making workshops intended for locals and primary school students, in collaboration with the US furniture company Herman Miller. Members from Ishinomaki Laboratory examined what was missing in temporary housing in the area, and found that both a step stool for accessing storage in high-up places and a chair for putting on shoes near the house entrance were needed. Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, the ISHINOMAKI STOOL is a perfect example of Ishinomaki Laboratory’s concept of the “Compact Outdoors.”

ISHINOMAKI  LABORATORY + LAMANA  ( Made in local Manila )

Ishinomaki Laboratory was founded as a workshop for locals in an area of Japan most devastated by the tsunami in March 2011. Carrying over the spirit of DIY, they restored local stores and held workshops (including one in Bohol after the 2013 earthquake). With straightforward and thoughtful designs grounded in necessity, Ishinomaki Laboratory has gone beyond the local community and expanded its reach as a respected furniture brand to New York, London, Zurich, Lausanne, Singapore, Hong Kong and now Manila.


With Ishinomaki Laboratory’s desire to empower local communities, they have created an initiative called Made in Local in which local craftsmen in Manila will manufacture their designs.  LAMANA is the exclusive PH partner of Ishinomaki Laboratory, and through the Made in Local initiative, Ishinomaki Laboratory pieces are proudly Philippine-made upheld by the brand’s impeccable standards.
