This extensive catalogue is paramount to the consideration of Kuramata's life's work. Compiled essays, brilliant reproductions, and careful examination of Kuramata's chronology and biography divulge the development of an original attention to space and objects. This publication stands as testimony to the designer-as-artist, evident here in Kuramata's intuitive sensitivity to the possibilities inherent to design and its possible forms.
This publication was compiled and printed on the occasion of the exhibition Shiro Kuramata, 1934–1991, Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, 1996 [intl. trav. exh., 1996–1999]
