Interview: Tokujin Yoshioka at
Design Miami


Design Miami 07: we were busy filming during our recent trip to Miami and here is the first completed movie - a short interview with Tokujin Yoshioka, Design Miami's Designer of the Year 2007.

In the interview (don't worry, only the first bit is in Japanese) Yoshioka talks about his "Tornade" installation, which is made of two million plastic drinking straws, and also demonstrates how to assemble his paper Honey-Pop chairs.

See photos of this installation in our earlier stories here and here. See all our stories from Design Miami 07 here.

Coming soon: Miami-flavoured interviews with designers including Tom Dixon, Stuart Haygarth, Tomáš Gabzdil Libertiny and more...

    Wow, this is very cool! This installation is extremely thought provoking and interesting. The TRANSLATOR spoke with impeccable English and has a very beautiful voice. Is this show going to travel through the US? I would love to see it. Excellent work!
