Unforgetable?...the memory chair foils us all...........

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has designed 'memory' chair for italian company moroso.

'Memory' is a chair of unlimited forms. its design is completed through the alteration of its silhouette. for the project, Yoshioka developed a special fabric made with recycled aluminum,which he has used to create a chair that transforms and memorizes its shape upon use.

From the designer

'Based on a concept which I conceived several years ago, we spent more than one year conducting experiments and verifications by making more than 50 actual scale models with aluminum. also for the fabric, I searched the most appropriate fabric that can realize the initial concept image, and I finally came to develop a fabric with recycled aluminum. after repetition of trial and error, 'memory', a chair that transforms and memorizes its shape by the intention of users, was completed. 'memory' has 'a deliberate loose form'.(...) I believe that the chair could be called 'a chair without a design.' at the same time, this is a chair that has an unlimited variety of forms.' - TY
