About this item

Shiro Kuramata (1931 to 1991) created a fluid exchange between Japanese design philosophy and methodology and European postmodern design. Kuramata’s training was initially centred around traditional woodworking however, when he enrolled at the Kuwasawa Design School was taught by Isamu Kenmochi, who helped him reimagine ancient Japanese traditions using modern materials. The philosophy Kuramata. His designs are made from materials that have reflective, transparent, translucent, opaque and tactile qualities to them, each form a response each material.
The Sing sing sing chair, designed in 1985 for the French manufacturer XO is crafted from tubular steel and expanded steel mesh. The flow of the piece is reminiscent of a treble clef – perhaps a nod to its title. Each chair shows signs of age with minor presence of rusting. One of the five chairs has had the seat re-welded.
