tokujin yoshioka’s prism partition for glas italia transforms different settings into mirage reflections
‘prism partition’ by tokujin yoshioka for glas italia is a partition panel made of faceted high-transparency mirror glass which transforms different settings into mirage reflections. the panels when placed within a natural setting, reflect plants upwards, creating a harmonious gradient between land and sky. the installation presents endless viewpoints and compositions depending on the setting and ones interaction with the piece. the design plays upon more than just the objects reflective properties but the individuals conscious perception of space.

for yoshioka’s display at salone del mobile 2016, the designer used four mirrors arranged at different heights. this vertical structure projected multiple shapes that curved in and around, creating a fluid ripple across the stand. visitors could observe their figure distort and transform as they walked passed, which introduced an interactive element to the static installation.
