Designer Nao Tamura pays homage to the 80th anniversary of Stool 60 by featuring a cross section of an 80-year-old tree onto the seat of this special edition stool. A tree's rings demonstrate its yearly trials and tribulations, a humbling viewpoint of nature's love of life. Tamura's intention of imprinting this "complex and organic graphic of life" onto this classic stool is to, "…evoke the bounty of nature as seen by the passage of 80 years of time." The stool is lacquered black with the white tree ring graphic on the seat.
