SHIRO KURAMATA "FLOWER VASE #1" 1989
Shiro Kuramata is one of the 20th century's most revered and distinctive designers.
His creations manifest an intersection between minimalism and an irreverence/playfulness similar to Memphis.
Kuramata's designs epitomize "sculptural furniture" - many of his works take conventional forms but dismiss functionality.
The "How High the Moon" chair from 1986 (made of wire steel mesh) is a prime example.
"Vase #1" is a fantastic piece from Kuramata's oeuvre and instantly recognizable by Design aficionados, however examples in this pale metallic pink are quite rare.
