Acrylic Stool

The Acrylic Stool is a culmination of Kuramata’s enthusiasm for the acrylic material. Here Kuramata has removed the colour witnessed in the vases, allowing the transparent acrylic to stand on its own. In a silence, gently stirred by floating feathers, it emphasises the purity of the material and symbolically conveys so much of what is essential in Kuramata’s artistic oeuvre. The grandness of this small sculpture is immense. It seems to contain the compactness of a whole ocean, a whole world. Tenderly moved by Life.
