Pyramid is a chest of drawers by Shiro Kuramata. The pyramid-shaped structure, made of transparent acrylic resin, contains 17 drawers of different sizes, made of black acrylic resin. The entire cabinet rests atop black rubber wheels with chromed metal carters.
From 1965, when Shiro Kuramata founded the Kuramata Design Office in Tokyo, to 1991, when he died, Kuramata designed some of the most significant and lasting items ever produced. Besides his connection with the Japanese design world, Kuramata’s significance in western design is shown first with Memphis, than in 1987 with Cappellini which made him its best designer to introduce the brand on international stage. His work is represented in the permanent collections of Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, of New York Moma, of Metropolitan Museum and of the Museum of Modern Art in Toyama.
