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.

    Thanks for the points you have shared here. Something important I would like to talk about is that personal computer memory requirements generally increase along with other improvements in the technological know-how. For instance, if new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there is usually a matching increase in the size and style demands of both computer memory and hard drive room. This is because the application operated through these processors will inevitably increase in power to leverage the new know-how.

  7. Interesting blog post. Some tips i would like to bring about is that laptop memory should be purchased but if your computer can’t cope with whatever you do along with it. One can set up two RAM memory boards of 1GB each, for instance, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should check the manufacturer’s documentation for one’s PC to be certain what type of memory space is needed.

  8. One thing I’d like to say is the fact that before getting more laptop or computer memory, check out the machine within which it is installed. In the event the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Installing more than this would easily constitute a waste. Make sure one’s mother board can handle an upgrade amount, as well. Good blog post.

This is because the application operated by means of these processor chips will inevitably surge in power to make new technological know-how.

  12. Thanks for enabling me to gain new ideas about computers. I also possess the belief that one of the best ways to keep your laptop computer in best condition has been a hard plastic-type material case, or shell, that will fit over the top of one’s computer. These kind of protective gear are usually model unique since they are made to fit perfectly in the natural outer shell. You can buy them directly from the vendor, or via third party places if they are available for your mobile computer, however its not all laptop will have a shell on the market. Once more, thanks for your tips.

  15. I have learned some new things from your internet site about pc’s. Another thing I’ve always thought is that computers have become something that each household must have for some reasons. They supply you with convenient ways to organize households, pay bills, shop, study, tune in to music and in many cases watch television shows. An innovative technique to complete every one of these tasks is with a laptop computer. These computer systems are mobile ones, small, powerful and mobile.

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.
