Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka (creator of the crystal chair) is back with a new "shape-shifting" chair, set to debut at Milan Design Fair this upcoming week. 

Inhabitat reports:

"Made of recycled aluminum, the amorphic chair, called 'Memory,' squishes into a new shape every time someone sits in it. Yoshioka designed the futuristic-looking piece of furniture for Italian brand, Moroso."

Yoshioka's Statement:

"'Memory' is a chair that completes its design by transforming its silhouette. In other words, this is a chair of an unlimited variety of forms. For this work, I developed a special fabric with recycled aluminum, and pondered about creating a chair that transforms and memorizes its shape.

This chair might remind us of the beauty in nature with its ever-changing expressions, and also create impression as if there is no presence of design."

That's not all Yoshioka has been up to. Check out his Godlike, Olafur Eliasson-esque chandelier grown from living crystals.

Inhabitat reports:

"Yoshioka's artificial star was once just a collection of crystals floating in a mineral bath. The crystals solidified into a dynamic sphere using a technique that slows down movement and provides a structure for natural gathering. While his pieces are being created, Yoshioka plays music to help guide them around a desired mold.

This is Yoshioka's second chandelier design for the Swarovski Crystal Palace and is one of his many designs inspired by a starry night. The chandelier's vibrant stature pulls the viewer into a magical world void of distraction. Stellar is sure to be the focal point in any interior — drawing the viewers in and allowing them to escape by lifting them up off the ground and into the night sky."
