The Torii stool by Bensen is an addition to the Torii chair collection, available in Bar and Counter height. Like the chair, the design is simple yet sophisticated and defined by its characteristic arched backrest. Its minimal appearance and simple construction hide a surprising amount of comfort and sturdiness.


The name Torii comes from the characteristic wood entrance arches of Shinto shrines in Japan, which translates into English as “bird perch”. This motif perfectly describes the stools distinct proportions and traditional joinery, and the sense of harmony and calm inherent in design that is beautifully resolved.

Torii is constructed using traditional exposed mortise-and- tenon joinery for the legs which is strong and expresses the honest intent of the design. The arched back rest is cleverly joined to each back leg using two long steel dowels and epoxy glue. This ensures this critical joint will not fail or crack, while keeping the material thin and light. The finish is an advanced low build water-based polyurethane that gives the wood a natural open-grain appearance, which is smooth to the touch and durable. A solid aluminum foot rail protects the wood frame.
