tokyo design week 08: yonoh creative studio

chair from the ‘boozo’ collection by yonoh creative studio for JMcontract
spanish creative studio, yonoh, participated in this year’s tokyo design week as part of the ‘spanish emotion’ exhibition which was curated by hector serrano and organized by ICEX (spanish institute of foreign trade). included in the show was their ‘plof’ light designed for ona and a chair which is part of their ‘boozo’ collection for JMcontract.


the ‘boozo’ collection is a series of seating which is made from a combination of two plywood curves, one which forms the seat and another which is meant to act as the back support of the chair. there is the option for one to eliminate the curved back seating and arms, making the chair act more like a stool. the chair can be finished in wood, lacquer or leather, with legs constructed for either wood or metal.

‘plof’ light which is made from a cathode tube and metal



‘plof’ uses tubes of cold cathode to illuminate a space with soft light. the light, which looks like it is made from one continuous tube, is bent in such a way that it can support itself. it comes in tints of green blue, red or white.
