SHIRO KURAMATA "FLOWER VASE #2" 1989
Shiro Kuramata is one of the 20th century's most revered and distinctive designers.
While he was affiliated with Memphis Milano, exhibiting in several of their exhibitions, he is quite singular in his aesthetic and his contribution to 20th century design.
Kuramata experimented with acrylic in the late 1960's but would return to it at the end of the 1980's.
His acrylic and glass vases were first exhibited at Galerie Yves Gastou in Paris, 1989.
While these are later works in his illustrious and lengthy career, they are some of the most important and iconic pieces he created.
"Flower Vase #2" is a fantastic piece from Kuramata's oeuvre and instantly recognizable by Design aficionados.
It is arguably his most recognizable vase - with its asymetrical tube suspended in phantom bubble-gum pink acrylic.
