Saga, Japan, 1967
"I create designs that inspire, touch and speak to the heart" (Tokujin Yoshioka). When Camper and Tokujin Yoshioka work together, emotionally stirring spaces emerge. Looking to his habitual source of inspiration, nature, the designer floods the premises with soft textures, bright colours and organic forms, where seeing becomes a tactile experience. Walls resembling wildflower carpets. Chairs like rose petals. A festive atmosphere where the shoes step up to play the perfect hosts.
