1943 - 2016

Designer Shigeru Uchida’s resume consists of projects ranging from architectural designs to functional urban planning. His simple yet fluid shapes transcend temporalities by merging aesthetic tradition with a futurity of form and function. Uchida’s works seem to play with the concept of liminal space and create social spaces that simultaneously exist as non- spaces, existing in their own timeline.

He has designed interiors for figures like Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto, his unconventional shapes and organic forms attracting a wide audience and reverence.

He has multiple works in permanent collections of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Montreal Museum of Decorative Arts and others, and has published numerous books on design.
