for milan design week 2011, japanese designer tokujin yoshioka has taken over by the moroso showroom with his ‘twighlight’ installation. the calm and surreal environment of soft light floods over a display of yoshioka’s ‘moon’ chairs, sculpted after the celestial body, that were designed for the italian furniture company.

the space of light and aura has been created so that the light reflects onto the surface of the chairs, revealing the various textures in which they are made, existing in the different white materials, such as plastics and unique fabrics.

also on show is ‘memory’,  with a foil-like surface that was presented last year while still in its prototype stage. for the project, yoshioka developed a special fabric made with recycled aluminum, that transforms and memorizes its shape upon use. the final product is a stunning sitting sculpture. tokujin yoshioka dreams up twilight installation for moroso ‘memory’ was shown last year while still in its prototyping stages – this year, the final version was presented image © designboom
