Bouquet by Tokujin Yoshioka

I love this! Bouquet is an armchair with sublime simplicity design by Tokujin Yoshioka. The chair "blooms" on a slim, chrome-metal stem that blossoms with white or delicately-coloured "petals" made of hand-folded fabric squares sewn one by one, with great care and infinite patience, to completely cover the internal surface of the egg-shaped, wrap-around shell.

“I got the idea for Bouquet from the installation I created last October for Moroso's New York showroom. I used about 30,000 paper tissues to recreate a cloud-like atmosphere. The Bouquet makes people who sit on it happy, just as a bouquet makes the person who receives it happy. The vibrant, delicate colours trigger different sensations in each of us.”
-Tokujin Yoshioka.

'Tokujin Yoshioka, is a great “couturier” with a meticulous eye for detail, he is a designer whose delicate, poetic, elegant designs help us to dream.
He likes to astonish us by producing surprising effects from simple, almost banal objects which he interprets and uses in an extraordinary way by means of his ability to see beyond and to reinterpret the world through the characteristic poetry and harmony of Japanese culture.' -moroso
