ABOUT Shiro Kuramata

Portrait of Shiro Kuramata



Shiro Kuramata (倉俣史朗) is a Japanese designer who plays with rules. He brings Japanese design to an intellectual abstraction. Born in Tokyo, he is part of a new generation of brilliant designers who reinvents post-war design. Branded as minimal, his design is much more complex and plays on opposite parts.
