How High the Moon (2-seater)

Named after an old jazz song, How High the Moon carries one of the most poetic titles of Kuramata’s works, and it nurtures readings as suggestive as its dim, curved contours.

How High the Moon resembles a sofa made of air, and thus illustrates another example of Kuramata’s attempt to defy gravity by working in transparent materials. The visual effect of the three dimensional pattern of the mesh is vibrating and blurs the outlines of the sofa bringing it to the edge of visibility.

The voluminous body is playfully contradicted by its lightness in materials. It is big yet it floats gracefully.
