Yoshioka visited the Chepelle du Rosaire located in Vence, a commune located near Nice, France, which Henri Matisse, a French painter, created in his last years. He was impressed to see the world of Matisse being expressed by the sunlight of the Provence. Since then, he had been dreaming of designing an space where people can feel the light with all senses.
