Celebrating an iconic designer.

After publishing the exquisite Tadao Ando: The Colors of Light Volume 1, global publisher Phaidon delights design lovers yet again with a tome that celebrates another Japanese icon. Naoto Fukasawa: Embodiment pays homage to Japan’s best-known product designer. The celebrated creator has worked with a range of renowned brands and companies, including Issey Miyake, Herman Miller, B&B Italia, and Driade, among many others. Featuring a restrained, minimal aesthetic and user-friendly designs, his products have a timeless appearance as well as universal appeal. In this monograph, Phaidon brings together more than 100 of Naoto Fukasawa’s latest designs.

The 288 pages feature 400 illustrations of his work, from furniture, lighting, and watches to apparel, phones, luggage, and accessories. A comprehensive collection, the book offers a fantastic opportunity to delve into the designer’s creative philosophy. At the same time, the tome explores the interplay between people, things and places – a dynamic link that defines Fukasawa’s work. Launched in April 2018, Naoto Fukasawa: Embodiment is available now in hardback at a price of $79.95. Buy here. Photographs© Phaidon.
