The exhibition includes multiple arm-chairs, as well as a loungers, all produced via the same crystallization process.
Yoshioka also created an installation called Clouds for the exhibition, which consists of overlapping transparent fibres. “I have tried to create a space, which will be retained in one’s memory like natural phenomenon that they had experienced before,” says the designer.
The exhibition runs through January of 09.
