Tokujin Yoshioka was born in Japan in 1967 and studied at the Kuwasawa Design School, where he gained his degree in 1986. In 1992 he started working as a free-lance designer and eight years later he established his own studio in Tokyo. His career can be traced back to the works with Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake.
His works, which transcend the boundaries of product design, architecture, and exhibition installation, are highly evaluated also as art.
Many of his works are displayed as a part of permanent collections in the world’s well-known museums including Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Centre National d’Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou, Victoria and Albert Museum, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and Vitra Design Museum.
