Tokujin Yoshioka

Tokujin Yoshioka
Tokujin Yoshioka (1967-) is one of the most famous contemporary Japanese designers. The measured poetry of the installations and objects he draws comes to life from a perfect fusion between the teachings of traditional Japanese style and the use of innovative techniques and materials. His creations emanate a magical and dreamy atmosphere thanks to a great mastery of the effects of light and transparency. Yoshioka was able to count on great masters: after graduating from the Kawasaki Design Institute in Tokyo he was able to work first for Shiro Kuramata and then for the designer Issei Miyake, for whom he was responsible for setting up the showrooms. Opened his own studio in Tokyo since 2000, he has designed projects of great importance such as the Water Block benches for the Orsay Museum in Paris or the Olympic Torch for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. He has also worked with many important Italian furniture brands such as Kartell, Moroso, Driade, Desalto, Lema, Glas Italia and Mutina.
