Shiro Kuramata (1934-1991) is a prolific Japanese interior designer
who had seen potential in the latest science and technology
since the ’60s and created a number of innovative modern products.
After studying interior design at Kuwasawa Design school, he founded the Kuramata Design Office in Tokyo in 1965.
He frequently employed industrial materials such as acrylic, glass, aluminum, and steel mesh
while combining them into traditional Japanese aesthetics for his works.
Many of his works were created under the theme of “be free of gravity”, which are transparent and floating-like objects adapting to daily life.
K-Series is one of the works that thoroughly reflects his philosophy.
