Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto designs Crystallised Wind for car-maker Lexus

Fujimoto’s unfortunately named Crystallised Wind furniture will be launched during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan next month

Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto will be presenting a ‘specially designed piece of furniture’, entitled Crystallised Wind as part of car-maker Lexus’ art exhibition in Milan, part of the international furniture fair Salone Internazionale del Mobile (22-27 April).

Fujimoto created the unfortunately named, if elegant, acrylic furniture, which is described as an ‘art form’ and resembles a series of tables, as an interpretation of the new Lexus L-finesse concept car. Also exhibited is an acrylic art piece representing the Lexus L-finesse’s ‘crystallised’ form.

On the name ‘crystallised wind’, Fujimoto said, ‘the term wind addresses not only the flow of wind, but also symbolises a flow or current in a greater sense. It is a new horizon where the natural and the artificial coexist in space.’

‘The result is an art form that represents movement yet stillness,’ Fujimoto continued. ‘The flow of time in a timeless environment.’

The exhibition, Lexus L-finesse - Crystallised Wind will take place at the Museo della Permanente art gallery in Milan from 22-26 of April. The exhibition is part of the world’s largest design fair, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, which takes place annually in Milan.
