Tokujin Yoshioka’s “Water Block” at the Musée d’Orsay, Paris

Tokujin's Water Block at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris

The Musée d’Orsay, Paris, the museum best known for its extensive collection of the Impressionist paintings, recently reopened the Impressionist Gallery on October 20. Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka/a> participated in the renovation by including his glass bench “Water Block” in the gallery.

The bench’s transparent, dynamic shape looks as if it was sculptured from a block of water. Its wavy surface contrasts with the water surface of the famous waterlilies by Monet, and reflects the light created by other Impressionist masters in this space. Check it out.
