By synthesizing the familiar with the avant-garde, Japanese designer Shiro Kuramata created a dynamic and wide-ranging oeuvre that is still celebrated today. On Thursday, December 7, Luminaire Lab opens its latest exhibition with a look at the prolific designer featuring a collection of unique pieces that highlight his sensitivity to form an abundance of creativity. The curated selection of pieces are complemented by the designer’s sketches and notes to illuminate the unique conceptual nature of his work. Giulio Cappellini, the founder of eponymous Italian design brand Cappellini, which continues to produce a number of original Kuramata designs under license, will be the guest of honor and offer further clarity and insight into the genius of the designer.
Opening Reception: December 7th at 6 pm.
Exhibition runs December 7th to mid-January 2018.
