Glass Torch and Cauldron
"TOKUJIN YOSHIOKA_FLAME: Glass Torch and Cauldron" features the latest work of the eponymous designer who designed the torch for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
Engaging in fields of design, architecture, and art around the world, Tokujin Yoshioka uses "light" as a material that transcends the concept of form to create works with unique expressions of transparency. The torch he designed for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 with the motif of cherry blossoms has drawn much attention worldwide.
This exhibition looks at the light of flame and reveals his latest works: "Glass Torch" and "Glass Cauldron." The torch and cauldron, designed for the ceremony of the JAPAN GAMES SAGA 2024 (formerly the National Sports Festival) to be held in 2024, are made of transparent glass, a material that has never been used before for such a purpose.
The glass bench "Water Block," one of his signature works, and the garment designed by MIYAKE DESIGN STUDIO for the ceremony of lighting the cauldron are on display at this exhibition. A special event of lighting the Glass Cauldron outside the venue is held several times during the exhibition period, bringing about the unprecedented experience into the world of light.
