Naoshima at 11 Inch Pizzeria

Spot the design favourite! Naoshima stools are an integral part of this plywood pizzeria designed by Zwei Interiors Architecture.

Zwei have created a playful take on a traditional takeaway food outlet with their new fitout for 11 Inch Pizzeria in Melbourne’s Docklands.

Simple colours and graphic forms are the order of the day, with bursts of lime breaking up the space.




Plywood is used in various ways throughout the interior, in the wall cladding and furniture.

The Naoshima stool, designed by Emiliana Design Studio, proved the ideal seating solution for this bold contemporary environment.


The Naoshima collection of stools and tables is an experimentation of the structural and expressive potential of curved plywood, and the Naoshima demonstrates this perfectly.

The stool’s seat comprises 4 identical pieces of plywood; together with 4 wooden legs, the piece is a solid and unique whole, a result of the furniture designers seeking to “design a stool where all the parts were related with each other; a stool that could be understood as a continuous object, and not like 4 legs added to a seat.”


The Naoshima stool was sourced exclusively through S&M Mobilia.
