to create the ‘blossom stool’ for louis vuitton, tokujin yoshioka took the company’s petal monogram and translated it into a symbolic piece representing the motion of blooming petals that transform into a bud. the seating object reflects on louis vuitton’s craftsmanship with wood and leather, featuring the techniques they have been cultivating throughout their long history. through its clean and clever design, the art object communicates an iconic message and travels beyond times, projecting not only the history but also the future of louis vuitton.
