Milan Design Week Part 4 (Tokujin Yoshioka)

Moroso’s showroom was filled with mist to present Tokujin Yoshioka’s “Moon Chair”. The installation was titled “Twilight”. They created the scene as if the light breaks through the cloud.

Here is a message from Yoshioka regarding this installation.


Nature is beautiful, yet the unimaginable energy inheres behind its beauty. Its beauty uplifts our emotion, and resonant in our heart, yet sometimes shows its threatening expression.

We have witnessed nature’s threats with our own eyes, and we have been reminded by the the importance of living with nature. I would like to think deeply about the nature and continue persuing the creation that seeks and express its elements of the beauty. With the deepest hopes in our future, I am presenting an exhibition “TWILIGHT-Tokujin Yoshioka” at MOROSO Showroom.

Creating the space with the light and the aura, I will display a new chair series “MOON.” “MOON” is the chair as if sculpted from this beautiful rounded shape of the Moon.

In this exhibition, the light reflects on the surface of the chairs and reveals the beauty of the various textures exist in the different kinds of white materials, such as plastics, and unique fabrics.

The space would remind people of the natural phenomenon, known as the angel’s ladder, and will bring visitors the celestial experience as if embraced by the natural world.

I hope the light of “TWILIGHT” will glow within people’s heart all over the world.
