Catalogue Note

"Much like when shards of glass are dropped in water and their outline gradually disappears, this chair has a similar image in the rain."

Tokujin Yoshioka

 

 

Tokujin Yoshioka credits his early studies with Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake as significant influences on his innovative sculptural designs.  "The Chair that Disappears in the Rain" is a series that Yoshioka introduced in 2002 consisting of high quality platinum molded glass.  The current lot is a variant design as the base incorporates an indigenious Japanese wood, adding an earthy warmth to the icy simplicity of the top.  A similar chair was introduced at Design Miami in 2007, where Yoshioka was awarded the Designer of the Year.
