Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has designed an incredible interior for a bar in Tokyo which is made of optical glass block, that creates the illusion of a “waterfall” while the light reflects off of the glass.
+ about designer
Tokujin Yoshioka was born in saga prefecture, japan in 1967. After graduating from kuwasawa design school in tokyo, he studied design under shiro kuramata (1987-1988) and issey miyake (1988-1992) and went free-lance in 1992. He then founded Tokujin Yoshioka Design in 2000. Tokujin started out at a very young age and went on to develop prototypes and numerous displays for Issey Miyake in the ’90s, then he was practically discovered and revealed to the world by Driade, the first company to exhibit his amazing Honey Pop series and successively began an intense round of design collaboration for mass- produced furniture.
This is where Tokujin succeeds in attaining the most challenging of equilibriums, over which many designers of art spaces stumble headlong: the mating of “functionless” artwork and “functional” interior design in a union where neither is allowed to steal the show.
