LG and world-renowned designer Tokujin Yoshioka recently took a top prize, the Milano Design Award 2017, for the collaborative art installation, Tokujin Yoshioka x LG: S.F_Senses of the Future.

The large-scale light installation was praised by Milan Design Week’s judging panel for its “ability to synthesize the conceptual, technological, narrative and emotional aspects in one single project.”

Tokujin Yoshioka x LG: S.F_Senses of the Future combined LG technology with Tokujin Yoshioka’s groundbreaking experimental designs to “illustrate humanities relationship with the natural world and to illuminate LG’s human-centric design philosophy.” The exhibition consisted of two parts, S.F chairs alongside Wall of the Sun, and taps into the innovative properties of LG’s OLED display and lighting technologies.
