Follow-up: Tokujin Yoshioka Exhibit at now! design à vivre in Paris

In continuing our report from 18 January, Mr Tokujin Yoshioka exhibited works from his “Crystallized Project” as part of his award as Creator of the Year at now! design à vivre in Paris.

The theme of the “Crystallized Project” is the reflection of the relationship between the power of nature and human beings. For Mr Yoshioka, these crystal works – the result of the laws of nature and unpredictable beauty – pursues nature’s beauty of essence, strength, and the fearful side with its astounding power.

Let’s take a look.

First, it’s the crystallized chair “VENUS – Natural crystal chair”.
By growing the crystals in an aquarium, VENUS takes the shape of chair which holds the crystal structure and makes its appearance over time as if goddess herself emerges from water.
