The Work of Shiro Kuramata: A Microcosmos of Memory

Nov 18 - Jan 28

Artist: Shiro Kuramata

Even today, Shiro Kuramata (1934–1999) remains a world-renowned and highly influential designer. His furniture and interior designs, which frequently made of acrylic and glass as well as metal building materials, have the power to transport the viewer. This exhibition, the first solo exhibition of Kuramata’s work to be held in Tokyo in over 20 years, spans the designer’s entire career and presents his dream journals and sketches, which provide context for his creations.
