“Shiro Kuramata” book published by Phaidon Press and authored by Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum in London and author of many highly-acclaimed books on design and architecture. His first-ever monograph documents the story of an influential furniture and interior designer against the backdrop of Japan’s turbulent history from the 1930’s to the ‘90s. Kuramata is an underrated figure of this time period, with a highly compelling and influential body of work. Most of the interiors he designed no longer exist, and can only be seen in photographs or described by those who have seen them in person. Featuring never-before-published photographs and drawings, this incredible public 2 volume publication was designed by Jonathan Hares, along with a beautiful acrylic slipcase.
