    I am honored to be able to participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay.
    I hope that the Olympic flame would become the light of hope.

    Tokujin Yoshioka

  • 29 March 2021

    The Olympic flame began its long journey of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay.
    I designed the torch in the wishes for peace and healing of hearts of those affected by the natural disasters.
    I hope that the flame would traverse and bring hope across Japan like blooming of sakura flowers.

    Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay Celebration Cauldron
    Designed by Tokujin Yoshioka

    The Celebration Cauldron is used for ceremonial occasions, including the Arrival Ceremony, the Special Display of the "Flame of Recovery", the Departure Celebrations and the celebrations at the end of each day. In addition, part of the material used to create the Cauldron is recycled aluminium which was originally used in the construction of temporary housing units in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake. The design is based on the same cherry blossom motif as that of the torch.

    We are pleased to announce that public art by Tokujin Yoshioka, titled “Crystal of Light”, is installed at Tokyo Metro Ginza Station from 16th October, 2020.

    Ginza is the epicenter of Tokyo’s luxury shopping, and the Ginza Station welcomes the average of 257,440 passengers a day. (Average of 2019) In celebration of the station’s renewal, Tokujin Yoshioka’s “Crystal of Light” is exhibited as a new symbol of the station for decades.

  • Easy-to-make FACE SHIELD

    14 April 2020

    I am grateful to the brave and dedicated healthcare workers for fighting the contagious disease.

    As the pandemic ranges, I started to think about what design could do for the society. I’d like to share my quick and simple face shield idea for emergency situation with shortage of medical supplies. It only takes 3 steps to create this face shield; put the template on top of a clear plastic sheet, cut them along the guideline, and attach it to your glasses.

    Hopefully this can be of any help to healthcare workers, and I wish the situation gets better soon.
