Hara Museum of Contemporary Art

Shiro Kuramata 1934-1991

This exhibition looked back on 30 years of the influential designer’s career, with a focus on furniture design. It was held at the Hara Museum in 1996, five years after Kuramata’s death in February 1991 at the young age of 56. The layout design at the Hara Museum was the work of one of Italy’s leading architects and designers, Ettore Sottsass, who was Kuramata’s trusted and revered teacher. Sottsass’s goal was a show that was not merely a display of Kuramata’s posthumous works, but an embodiment of the vision that Kuramata sought to express. Panel photos by Nobuyoshi Araki displayed during the exhibition were also noted for the resonance they had with Kuramata’s design by virtue of their shared sense of nostalgia and sensuality.
