Ever grown a chair..? Tokujin Yoshioka Design – Venus Natural Crystal Chair


When I stumbled upon this design I was really blown away, not just the design itself but rather the theory behind it..

read on, you’ll understand what I mean..

Tokujin Yoshioka - Crystal Chair

“Nature shows us a beauty that exceeds our imagination. On the other hand, it contains a strength that is sometimes frightening. The forms of nature are unique and cannot be reproduced. This endows them with mysterious beauty and makes them fascinating to us”.

- Tokujin Yoshioka

Have you ever grown a chair..?

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has painstakingly created the natural crystal chair, or ‘VENUS’

The tiny crystals are grown in an aquarium, layer upon layer added and carefully moulded to create the VENUS char.

Yoshioka suggests his design, “which is formed using the laws of nature and embodies a beauty born of coincidence, pushes the boundaries of creativity.. The work is like my message for the future.”
And I’d tend to agree.

Perhaps one day we will be eating off tables that were grown in a lab, whilst sitting on chairs that formed in an aquarium.

A unique CD package – Wandering Pleiades

DSC_4700

Pleiades is a Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing female group. The group was founded in May 2006 in Thessaloniki, in order to contribute to the diffusion of the Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing.

Kostas Bartsokas designed their first album “Wandering Pleiades”. The cd package is designed from a single cut craft stock without the use of any glue or plastic parts. It was printed with pantone black and white. The package is inspired by their clean – vocal only – music and reflects an earthly and clean tone which is emphasized by the stock color and feel. The six Pleiades sit underneath the bridge and sing their songs. The artwork references the old bridges of Epirus and some traditional patterns of Epirotic knit ware.
