Tokujin Yoshioka will exhibit Stellar, a new chandelier made from crystal at the Swarovski Crystal Palace during the upcoming Salone del Mobile in Milan.
“In 2005, I designed a futuristic chandelier entitled “Stardust“, which expressed a scene where moving images being projected onto the dark night sky by an infinite particle of lights. Three years later, in 2008, I designed a stool “Eternal“. For this work, I had an image of bringing down the star cluster and its brilliant beauty from the sky and sealing them eternally in the transparent lump. This year, I intend to create a star, descended from the sky emitting many rays of light in the space; thus I would like to name this work “Stellar”.
