"Tornado" by Tokujin Yoshioka

Tokujin Yoshioka's 'Tornado' installation was the main event at Design Miami 2007. Tokujin was named this year's (2007) designer of the year following previous winners Marc Newson and Zaha Hadid. Yoshioka has sent us some images from the installation that consisted of millions of plastic drinking straws piled into maze-like arrangements inside miami's moore building. Throughout the mounds of straws were various chair design by Yoshioka, including 'honey pop', 'pane' as well as the new 'rainbow chair' and another glass chair made from the same optical glass he used for his waterfall bar. (to find out more..)

Venue for Design Miami 2007. The image shows a very interesting diversity in the combination of architecture/art styles. (Tokujin's "Tornado" was exhibited on the top floor.)
