by HIDEKI YOSHIMOTO
Rise perfectly depicts the appearance of air bubbles rising to the surface, implying life under the surface; a presence that we cannot see but are encouraged to imagine. Yoshimoto challenged the complex way light travels and reflects inside different materials for this sculpture, resulting in a mesmerising visual effect.

Hideki Yoshimoto in 2015 founded Tangent, a London-based design and invention brand. The brand explores and proposes unique ideas which bring the latest technology to people’s lives to improve and help them. Interweaving technology with design at the most sophisticated level, Tangent promises a wholly novel yet somehow familiar experience. A tangent line does not dissect a curve but touches it at a given point. The brand's idea of 'new, familiar, luxurious' is undoubtedly represented in their products, which respect such tenderness and subtlety, as well as the strength of the point of contact.
