Japanese artist and designer, Tokujin Yoshioka is the recipient of 'Creator of the Year Award 2012' (Maison et Objet 2012). He has designed for Swarovski, a beautiful watch 'Lake of Shimmer - Avant Watch No. 3'. The bracelet consists of reflective octagonal element parts. The mirrored face appears as if it is reflecting the sun off the surface of a lake, emitting a strong brilliance and luminosity to the wearer.
Tokujin Yoshioka likes the nature of crystal. "I'm not interested in its image of luxury or gorgeousness, but rather more interested in its ability to receive light through its facets. Though crystal is transparent, its features emerge through the light. I do a lot of projects with transparent materials. I like them because they are invisible and their figures are revealed by light. It's response to light is fascinating", says Tokujin Yoshioka.
