This event has ended.

The exhibition features approximately 60 pieces of transparent and precious works created by Shiro Kuramata in the 10-year span from 1981, and approximately 20 never-seen-before art pieces based on Ettore Sottsass’s drawings created in his final years, inspired by the Native American doll, “KACHINA.” Please experience and enjoy a new encounter with spirited “design” of boundless freedom, found through the works of these two designers and their endless dreams and love.

東京ミッドタウン裏にある21_21 DESIGN SIGHTでやってます。
なにげに昼間に来たの初めてかも…

全体を通しての感想は「不思議」でした。

「カチナ」なる妖精?を立体化したガラスの置物(穴開いてたし、花瓶なんだろか)から始まり、
東京都現代美術館においてある倉俣史朗さんの金属の椅子や
以前Bunkamuraで見かけた花をアクリルに封入したシリーズなど、
「どうやって作ってるんだ!?」と思うようなものが続く。

バウハウスやコルビジェの合理的構造に対する疑問がスタートラインにあるようで、
機能としては不要な形や色味、製造法をいかに実用的な雑貨に押し込むか、という視点が面白いです。
