It is spring time..
A bed of rose petals has often been associated with romance, luxury and femininity. Although the act of sprinkling flowers on a surface is lovely for a day or two the scene will quickly fade. Not so with Tokujin Yoshioka's 'Bouquet Chair' which envelops the same sentiments but preserves the moment in a piece of furniture. Hand-folded Alcantara fabric petals cover a simple egg-shaped shell with a lacquered steel base creating this fanciful seat. Even after the chair has been sat in the petals resume their original shape. ($7,830) (from www.luxist.com)
