Furniture Design

Kuramata, Shiro (1934 - 1991)

In the 1960s, the Japanese designer founded his own interior and furniture design studio. He explored the relationship of objects and their environment, playing with transparency and lightness. To do so he used unusual materials (glass or steel mesh) or invented new functions to imagine poetic and dreamlike creations.
