Tokujin Yoshioka glass bench in the Musée d’Orsay, Paris
Tokujin Yoshioka is participating in the renovation project of the Impressionist gallery in the Musée d’Orsay, Paris.
Tokujin has pondered a plan to exhibit his glass bench “Water block” in this gallery, displaying master works of Manet, Degas, Monet, Cézanne, and Renoir.
“Water block” is produced with special technique using platinum mold.
This transparent, dynamic shape looks as if it is sculptured from a block of water.
The wavy surface of this glass bench, which reminds of the water surface of “Water lilies” by Monet, will reflect the light painted by Impressionist masters, and create miraculous space, where harmonious interaction between history and the present are began.
