Portrait of Isamu Kenmochi, circa 1950



Isamu Kenmochi (剣持勇) is a Japanese designer. He is one of the initiators of industrial design in his country. He adapted foreign manufacturing methods and took advantage of technologies advances that he had observed during his international trips. He thus shaped a two-faced Japanese modern design where a reasonable production coexists in harmony with traditional crafts.
