Nature is constantly inspiring design, and the Moon Chair by Tokujin Yoshioka is on example of the astronomical pull towards organic furnishings.
The form of the perch was first conceived by hand with wispy brushstrokes in watercolor illustrations. The deep red-orange hues pop for the page, suggesting the sharp contours of an otherwise smooth plastic sculpture. The seat's shape embraces a soft three-dimensionality taken from the celestial source itself, given a new physique fit for ergonomic comfort.
The finished product is a bright and glossy white, dish-like lounger. Space has been scooped out beneath the seat to provide room for the feet, and altogether the smooth seat hugs the silhouette of the sitter. Embracing the organic beauty of the natural world, the Moon Chair by Tokujin Yoshioka has a truly ethereal appeal.
