Shiro Kuramata

Japanese designer


Shiro Kuramata (born November, 1934–died February, 1991) is one of Japan’s most important designers of the 20th century. Kuramata was mainly known for his use of industrial materials, such as wire steel mesh and lucite, to create architectural interiors and furniture. Revolutionary pieces, such as the How High the Moon chair (1986), reflect the emerging dynamism and maturing creativity of postwar Japan. His Ikebana, a lead, cristal-free handblown vase, realized by Vilca from Colle Val d’Elsa (Siena) Italy, is a unique example of fusion between oriental and occidental cultures. read more

In 1990, the French government named Kuramata the distinguished Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in recognition of his outstanding contribution to art and design.Last updated: February 27, 2019
