Shiro Kuramata 1985 Sing Sing Sing Armchair

About

Armchair Sing Sing Sing designed by Shiro Kuramata in 1985 and produced by xO, co-founded by Philippe Starck in 1984. Expanded metal, silver-grey coated tubular steel. Marked xO. This rare beauty will be shipped overseas in a custom made wooden crate. Cost of transport to the US crate included is Euro 825. Shiro Kuramata playfully stretched and skewed tropes of Western design, while combining them with traditional Japanese aesthetics, to produce items of furniture that are surreal, humorous, and often poetic. Kuramata’s Miss Blanche chair (1988), a transparent resin chair flecked with synthetic roses, creates the appearance of a sitter floating on a cloud of blooms. In a design for two chests of drawers, Furniture in Irregular Forms (1970), the Stark black-and-white lacquered finish is a nod to the severity of modern furniture, while the undulating shapes capture a more lighthearted attitude. The whimsical spirit of Kuramata’s designs is typical of postmodernism. Kuramata became closely associated with this style in 1981 when he joined Ettore Sottsass’s Memphis Group, an Italian collective that included designers such as Michele De Lucchi, Andrea Branzi, and Nathalie du Pasquier.
