  • TOKUJIN YOSHIOKA KOU-AN Glass Tea House

    13 April 2015

    Opening reception of the exhibition was lately held at the stage of Seiryu-den, Shogunzuka which is in a precinct of a historical temple in Kyoto. Tokujin extends his sincere appreciation to all people and companies who have been giving the warm encouragement and kind support to realize this exhibition.

    Originally, the culture of Tea Ceremony was generated in the microcosmic space which is closed. The project " KOU-AN Glass Tea House " is not just a modernized tea house that was evolved from traditional style tea house but a project that traces origin of the culture which is peculiar to Japan.

    Tokujin considers that the important thing for tracing the "origin" is perceiving the time that is created along with nature. The perception indicates to be released by superficial designs, to integrate with nature and to sense the light itself. KOU - AN does not have a scroll nor flowers that are supposed to be provided in traditional tea houses. However, glitters that reminds of ripples on surface of water spreads out on the floor. Also, at some point in the afternoon, there will be rainbow lights which is created by sunlights and a prism glass and it decorates the tea house as if there is a flower of light.

    In A.D.794, A japanese emperor at the time visited Shogunzuka and he was convinced that Kyoto would be a right place to be a capital of Japan and started constructing the capital. Thus, Shogunzuka in a precinct of Shoren-in temple in Kyoto is a place where the city of Kyoto which symbolizes Japanese cultures.

    Starting this project from such a historical place, Tokujin is planning a traveling exhibition all over the world with the aim of providing people new experiences through the project and by producing works that make us think of origins of Japanese culture.

    15 May 2013

    At BASELWORLD 2013 in Switzerland known as an international trade show of watch and jewellery, the new stand of SWAROVSKI designed by Tokujin Yoshioka was presented.

    'Wings of Sparkle'

    SWAROVSKI stand is an immense circular stand that covers more than 2,000m2 over two levels, taken up its residence within the fair's new hall.

    The stand is entirely surrounded by a 7 meter high curved wall of 155 meters circumference. This is made of 253,231 reflectors with a mirrored surface that symbolize the facets so characteristic of Swarovski, and on these 60 mm reflectors, 22,856 LED lights were positioned on the Sparkle wall.

    In the stand, its watch and fashion jewelry collections are displayed, and it is a poetic reference to Swarovski's brand signature concept. Visitors enter the world of Swarovski by being veiled with light of luminance and immerse in a bath of light. This fascinating glow also evokes images of a swan on a lake spreading its wings gracefully.

    With the great curvature and the dynamic space of lights, the visitors are enveloped in the sparkle and experience the light itself as if entering into the dazzling crystal and expresses Swarovski's ' world of luminance ' with its pursuit of beauty.
