The height of the stool is 377.6 millimeter high to reflect Mt. Fuji’s height of 3,776 meters. From my research based on agronomics, the center hole on the top is 70 mm in diameter to hold and to carry it easy. The top of the seat is slightly indented along a hip. There’re the large kindness for sitting on this with just a little indentation. This indented form would provide comfort to user.

The Mt Fuji Stool can be recyclable and renewable, so the sustainable design is able to last over the 100 years. The project will contribute to a sustainable society.
