A range of ‘simple, sculptural and inexpensive’ plastic furniture designed by Tokujin Yoshioka for manufacturer Driade will launch at Selfridges in London at the end of this month. The furniture, called Tokyo Pop, is made from single-block plastic using rota
tional production techniques, which allow complex hollow forms to be produced. The range is meant to be ‘humorous and appeal to the young’ and was inspired by the Japanese paper lantern, according to a spokeswoman for Driade. The range includes an armchair, sofa (pictured left), chaise lounge and small tables/stools (pictured right), and is available in ivory, orange and grey plastic and as an upholstered version in a wool/cotton mix.
