a cura di 21 21 Design Sight

The exhibition features approximately 60 pieces of transparent and precious works created by Shiro Kuramata in the 10-year span from 1981,and approximately 20 never-seen-before art pieces based on Ettore Sottsass’s drawings created in his final years, inspired by the Native American doll, “KACHINA.” Please experience and enjoy a new encounter with spirited “design” of boundless freedom, found through the works of these two designers and their endless dreams and love.

In addition to commentary on the purpose of the exhibition as well as the works on display, the exhibition book touches upon Italian design and Ettore Sottsass, both having immense impact on the works of Shiro Kuramata. A ‘permanent’ guide that passes on the philosophy, works, and history of Kuramata design.
