Cloud paper sofa by Tokujin Yoshioka

Milan 09: Italian manufacturers Moroso, will present a sofa by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka at the furniture fair in Milan this month.


The prototype on display will be made of paper; the design will later be developed for production using fabrics.


Here's some text from Tokujin Yoshioka Design:


Paper sofa "Cloud"

I have pondered on expressing the texture of material in nature through industrial product.


This new product for Moroso might be a reminiscent of clouds in the sky and flow of water, which are breathed in one's memories. For the prototype, which will be presented this year's Salone, I decided to use paper in order to make it conceptual.


Later on, they will be developed with fabrics and other materials for daily use. I am fascinated in the elements of nature, because they are not deliberated on purpose but they have the beauty born of coincidence beyond human imagination.
