“Choosing tableware is an expedition only taken on by those ready to settle into a look which will remain in their family for generations. Hermes hopes that you will consider their Bleus D’Ailleurs tableware collection.Blue porcelain has been with us for centuries and this collection is inspired from the past while delivering elegant looks that summarize a modern spin. “Having come from China after a long voyage, the designs are directly inspired by nature. So there is nothing rigid about the petals, the daisies, the honeycomb…” Black highlights work with the blue in delivering an absolutely beautiful collection of porcelain tableware for your home.”

Born in Saga, Japan in 1967.  Worked under Shiro Kuramata in 1987 and Issey Miyake since 1988 and established his own studio, Tokujin Yoshioka Design in 2000.

He has done many projects with Issey Miyake for nearly 20 years such as shop design and installation for A-POC and ISSEY MIYAKE.  Also, he has collaborated with various companies in and outside Japan such as HERMES, TOYOTA, BMW, KDDI, SWAROVSKI, and other noted ones.

Since the paper chair “Honey-pop” (2001) has attracted a great deal of public attention, Tokujin produced Driadeユs “Tokyo-pop”, Yamagiwa’s lighting “ToFU”, cell phone”MEDIA SKIN” for au design project, chandelier “STARDUST” for SWAROVSKI Crystal Palace, polyester chair “PANE Chair”, “Chair That Disappears in the Rain” made of special glass, installations for LEXUS, MOROSO and many others. They have been highly evaluated as art works simply more than design works.

Some of his most important works are displayed as a part of permanent collections in the world’s well-known museums such as 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.
