Tokujin Yoshioka’s Paper Cloud Sofa for Moroso
Published on June 18, 2015
Elements of nature and of human imagination synthesize through a texture and a light form like clouds.
“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 was presented in Salone, I decided to use paper in order to make it conceptual. Later on, I developed with fabrics and other materials for daily use. I am fascinated by the elements of nature, because they are not deliberated on purpose but they have the beauty born of coincidence beyond human imagination.”
