Celebrating the solar decade, this limited edition by Japanese artist Tokujin Yoshioka reflects the character of the vintage. His works, which transcend the boundaries of product design, architecture, and exhibition installation, are highly evaluated also as art. His works are displayed as part of permanent collections in such highly reputed museums as MoMA in NYC, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in NYC and Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein. Tokujin Yoshioka was named one of the "100 most respected Japanese by the world," by the Japanese edition of Newsweek and one of "The 100 Most Creative People in Business 2010" by Fast Company magazine in the USA.
