Via Spoon & Tamago I rediscovered an eye twitching glass bench by Japan based designer Tokujin Yoshioka: the Waterfall Bench which was presented in 2010 at the occasion of the Museum beyond Museum event in Korea, but originates back from 2002. And I’m a bit sad I didn’t have enough time to explore his exposition in Cologne at the occasion of his appointment of Designer of 2011 by the prestegious German A&W Magazine.
Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka launched a crumpled aluminium chair for Italian brand Moroso in Milan last year.
The Memory Chair is covered in a layer containing recycled aluminium, which retains its form.

CLOUD by Tokujin Yoshioka for Moroso
Moroso brought a range of major new products to the Milan Furniture Show this year. The basic concepts for this yearâ€™s show are lightness and playing with images â€“ things are not always exactly what they seem â€“ and a study of forms, colours and fabrics: super sophisticated, high-tech and new.
This Glass Stool by Tokujin Yoshioka was recently completed as part of a project begun in 2002.
