Let there be light: Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka's paean to transparency and lightness in the form of his retrospective at the Cologne Kunstverein, which coincided with him being named A&W Designer of the Year 2011

‘Maybe I don’t like objects.’ It’s not every day you hear such a statement from a designer, particularly one as celebrated as Tokujin Yoshioka, who was recognised as A&W Designer of the Year 2011 during this year’s IMM Cologne. But, then again, there’s a certain (pleasing) contradiction in the design language of the Japanese creative’s work, which, through its ongoing engagement with the ideas of transparency and lightness, gives expression to objects that sit somewhere between presence and absence. Architonic met up with Yoshioka in Cologne to trip the light fantastic.


'Phenomenon' by Tokujin Yoshioka for Mutina

Once more the Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka inspires with his sense for delicate surfaces and structures. Recently at this year’s CERSAIE in Bologna he unveiled ‘Phenomenon’, a new family of three-dimensional structured ceramic tiles he created for the Italian manufacturer Mutina. The collection includes the patterns ‘snow’, ‘honey-comb’ and ‘rain’.

Moroso presented in Milan a new sofa and armchair by the Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka.

“I have pondered on expressing the texture of material in nature through industrial product. This new product for Moroso might be a reminiscent of clouds in the sky and flow of water, which are breathed in one’s memories.

For the prototype, which will be presented this year’s Salone, I decided to use paper in order to make it conceptual. Later on, they will be developed with fabrics and other materials for daily use.

I am fascinated by the elements of nature, because they are not deliberated on purpose but they have the beauty born of coincidence beyond human imagination.” (Tokujin Yoshioka)
