Kuramata, Sottsass: The Importance of Dreams and Love
21_21 Design Sight, Tokyo
Designer: Ettore Sottsass, Shiro Kuramata
Although the ways they express themselves are different, the exhibition was based on the friendship between these two men, who brought joy and wonder into everyday life with their designs, while transcending mere functionality and convenience. The show focused on Kuramata’s lucid work beyond the 80’s, and the “Kachina” art pieces based on Sottsass’s drawing in his later years.
