Born in Japan in 1967, he studied at the Kuwasawa Design School, graduating in 1986. In 1992 he began work as a consultant designer and 8 years later he established a studio in Tokyo. His professional career is rooted in the fruitful collaboration with Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake. The 10 year association with the famous fashion designer has produced numerous important projects, such as the Issey Miyake and A-POC stores. The exhibitions including Issey Miyake Making Things, at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, and A-POC Making, at the Vitra Design Museum in Berlin, are among the most brilliant examples of his work as set designer, director, and maker of installations. Tokujin Yoshioka’s collaboration with Driade started in 2002, when he created the Honey-pop and Tokyo-pop designs for the Driade showroom in Milan. The following year he conceived the artistic performance for Clouds, the event at the Rotonda della Besana in Milan with which Driade celebrated its 35 years on the design scene. Honey-pop is part of the permanent collection at MOMA in New York, the Centro Georges Pompidou in Paris, and the Vitra Design Museum in Berlin.
