Called Twilight, the installation comprised artificial smoke hanging in the air with beams of light streaming through.

The following text is from Tokujin Yoshioka:


Twilight

Nature is beautiful, yet the unimaginable energy inheres behind its beauty. Its beauty uplifts our emotion, and resonant in our heart, yet sometimes shows its threatening expression.

Twilight by Tokujin Yoshioka for Moroso

We have witnessed nature's threats with our own eyes, and we have been reminded by the the importance of living with nature. I would like to think deeply about the nature and continue persuing the creation that seeks and express its elements of the beauty. With the deepest hopes in our future, I am presenting an exhibition "TWILIGHT-Tokujin Yoshioka" at MOROSO Showroom.

Creating the space with the light and the aura, I will display a new chair series "MOON." "MOON" is the chair as if sculpted from this beautiful rounded shape of the Moon.

In this exhibition, the light reflects on the surface of the chairs and reveals the beauty of the various textures exist in the different kinds of white materials, such as plastics, and unique fabrics.

The space would remind people of the natural phenomenon, known as the angel's ladder, and will bring visitors the celestial experience as if embraced by the natural world.

I hope the light of "TWILIGHT" will glow within people's heart all over the world.

    Beautiful, it's like sitting in a moon crater. I wonder what the furniture on earth looks like from that view!

    If you have to create a "mist" in the showroom, you've got a big problem!

      it was pretty simple. looked to be a smoke machine type thing reacting with light rays and then felt on the floor that when dirty looked like dust. chair was fine too. a solid little showing

    Too precious for me. I would prefer seeing Gwar in the fog.
