Shiro Kuramata's designs seem to aim in shocking and exciting directions with shocking ideas, but because they are deeply grounded in original intellectual work, the displayed world is as gentle and understated as his personality itself, and is sublimated to a sensual elegance. I call Kuramata a serene revolutionary."
