Desalto, Element, design Tokujin Yoshioka.

Black and white geometries.

Black and white are still an evergreen pair.

Combined or single, they are at their best if used on pure shapes and geometric lines. They set off the contrasts both on soft curves and sharp edges. Furnitures go further beyond the basic function of an object to become a sculpture in a space.
