Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka will present a chair made of natural crystals at Second Nature, an exhibition he is directing at 21_21 Design Sight in Tokyo later this month.
The chair is "grown" in a tank as crystals form on a sponge-like substrate.
The Second Nature exhibition features work by Yoshioka as well as invited designers including Ross Lovegrove and the Campana Brothers. Second Nature runs from 17 October to 18 January 2009. http://www.dezeen.com/2008/10/05/venus-chair-by-tokujin-yoshioka/
FAILURE IS SECOND NATURE.
Let’s talk a little bit about human nature .We are political animals .It means that we are designed to live with one another .It is vital for our survival and we become aware of our own nature.Let me explain.
How would a new born knows what a human is if he doesn’t see another human in front of him? Indeed if you were born in a desert island and left there without any other humans ,you would act like an animal because our conscience feed on everybody else’s experiences to really comprehend our environment .
