  • Luminous sculpture "STAR" is permanently exhibited in Yaesu, Tokyo

    15 September 2022

    STAR

    Tokyo Station is the gateway to Japan.
    Tokujin Yoshioka's new public art piece "STAR" is installed and exhibited at TOKYO MIDTOWN YAESU, which is planned to open across Tokyo Station.
    The gigantic 10-meter sculpture is made of stainless steel mirrored rods that converge, as if crystallizing, to create a luminous "sculpture of light".
    The more than 2,000 octagonal rods of mirrored stainless steel randomly reflect the sunlight and become one with the surrounding environment, reflecting sunlight during the day, turning a beautiful amber color at sunset, and even reflecting the light of the night sky, creating a sculpture whose radiance changes in many ways.
    This shining star represents a wish for peace, that the world may be united as one.

    Title: STAR
    Artist: Tokujin Yoshioka
    Size: Approx.10m (height)
    Location: TOKYO MIDTOWN YAESU (located across from Yaesu Central Exit of Tokyo Station)
    Address: 2-Chome, Yaesu, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan

    *This work is permanently installed in the outdoor space at the main entrance.
    *Some facilities open from September 17, 2022. Grand opening of TOKYO MIDTOWN YAESU will be in March 2023.

  • RIP ISSEY MIYAKE

    10 August 2022

    I first met Issey-san when I was 20 years old and was introduced to him by Shiro Kuramata.
    For the 35 years since then, Issey-san has been a mentor and a father figure to me.
    I learned from Issey-san the beauty of making that is created from challenges.
    I can only express my gratitude for the many moving moments he shared with me.
    I sincerely pray for his soul rest in peace.

Inspired by the production technique of underwear, the mask is formed together by welding the fabric to make it completely stitchless to pursue softer touch on the skin. This functional, simple, and beautiful design of the mask was achieved from more than 100 prototyping and testings that went on for over a year.
