Shiro Kuramata


Shiro-cover Shiro-Kuramata-spread1

Handsome, and very scarce, Japanese monograph/catalogue published to accompany the major survey exhibition held at Hara Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo in 1996 of Shiro Kuramata, one of Japan’s most important designers of the 20th century.  Kuramata translated workaday industrial materials -wire steel mesh, corrugated aluminium, lucite-
into poetic objects and interiors.  Lavishly illustrated with stunning photographic documentation of his furniture, glassware, interiors, lighting, and architecture (including his incredible boutique interiors for fashion designer Issey Miyake, and his work as a key member of Italian design group Memphis, which he joined at its founding in 1981), this book is certainly one of the finest volumes on Kuramata.

* Condition: Very Good, only slight shelf wear and light sun tanning – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
