Moroso Paper Cloud by Tokujin Yoshioka

Paper Cloud 1

'elements of nature and of human imagination synthesized through a texture and a light form like clouds.'
-Tokujin Yoshioka.

As a part of Milan Design Week 2oo9, tokujin yoshioka debuted his 'paper cloud' sofa which he created for Moroso. While the prototype of the sofa is made from tensioned/shirred paper, Moroso will further develop the sofa by using different kind of fabrics making it suitable for daily use.

'I have pondered on expressing the texture of material in nature through industrial product. This new product for Moroso might be a reminiscent of clouds in the sky and flow of water, which are breathed in one’s memories. For the prototype, which will be presented this year’s Salone, I decided to use paper in order to make it conceptual. Later on, they will be developed with fabrics and other materials for daily use. I am fascinated by the elements of nature, because they are not deliberated on purpose but they have the beauty born of coincidence beyond human imagination.'
-Tokujin Yoshioka.
