ToFU and Honey


Tokujin Yoshioka’s ToFU lamp is magical. The spare form—a square cut delicately from clear methacrylate resin—conducts light only around its edges, stemming from a single halogen bulb. It is as though light itself is harnessed in the design, caught within and released by the material in a minimal, sensual gesture.

The Outdoor Chair


The 30 chairs on display in the garden of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum are the creation of thirty artists, architects, and furniture designers from the San Francisco area, who were invited to explore the theme of outdoor seating. These sculptural seats are made from a variety of materials, including steel, wire, mesh, aluminum, galvanized hardware, glass crates, and tree branches. Visitors are encouraged to sit on the exhibits!
