The ToFU lamp is a creation by the notable Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka for Yamagiwa in Japan. Tokujin Yoshioka is considered by many to be one of the foremost practitioners of refined minimalist design and art. The ToFu Lamp expresses the essence of good design in the manner of the minimalist art by Donald Judd. This ultra sleek monolithic block made of crystal clear methacrylate is deprived from any unnecessary decorative components. Tokujin Yoshioka's ToFU Lamp is a successful study in minimalism, an understated ode to refined simplicity and timeless elegance. Tofu becomes complete when the illuminant is inserted. The significance of the Tofu Lamp is manifested through light, not the lamp.
