Winner of Wallpaper*s 2008 Designer of the Year designation, Tokujin Yoshioka is curator of Second Nature. The exhibition, housed at Issey Miyake’s 21_21 Design Sight Gallery, incorporates the material of eight designers working through the idea of designs future. Yoshioka’s own portion is driven by the merger of technology and nature. Such hybrids inform some of the others as well, and via Yoshioka’s vision are presented in a space worthy of time transport analogies.
Wallpaper* selected a few of their favorites. Once again, and with thanks to them, we have selected a few of ours. More from Second Nature follows.
