Esprit House, Tokyo

Throughout his long lasting relationship with Esprit, Kuramata produced some of his most important work and substantial interiors. In 1983 he was asked to design the interior of the company’s guesthouse located in a residential area of Tokyo. In the living room, floor to ceiling windows contrasted against Kuramata's terrazzo floors, where a custom table made of Star Piece terrazzo was flanked by two Sofas with Arms (single) and a unique Sofa with Arms (triple) designed exclusively for the interior. —Wright
