Since the publication of the amazing monograph on Shiro Kuramata (written by the renowned Design curator Deyan Sudjic) the amazing Japanese designer has transitioned from niche acclaim to blue-chip superstar. 

Nearly a dozen of his creations have surpassed the six-figure mark at auction (most of these results in the last five years).

While Japanese fashion designers are well-known, Kuramata is one of the only interior architects / product designers with an international reputation. 

While Kuramata had a brief association with Memphis, he is admired for his interiors, furniture and objects that capture a unique intersection between minimalism and irreverence.

Kuramata's greatest hits, realized in acrylic, were created during the last decade of his lifetime, yet they are the most iconic and sought-after on the secondary market. 

His vases, which rarely come available, are prime examples of his aesthetic and genius.
