"TOKUJIN YOSHIOKA_Glass Fountain" was exhibited in the ISSEY MIYAKE flagship store in Milan, which was also designed by Tokujin Yoshioka.
Tokujin Yoshioka presented the new work “FOUNTAIN - Glass Table” in collaboration with Glas Italia. This series of glass table, which shine like fountains, are created when the glass craftsmanship in Murano Island, Italy meet the industrial technologies.
In the manufacturing process, with the technique of glass craftsmen, a sheet of glass disc is transformed into a three dimensional shape giving a structure to a mass of glass. This process creates a form of unexpectedness, and gives expressions to manufactured products different one by one. It expresses water flow reborn as a fountain and form the form only uncontrolled nature can create.
This installation reminds us of beautiful ripples or sparkles of natural light, and these glitterings will be projected into the entire space.
