Laputa, Tokyo

One of Kuramata’s last commissions, Laputa restaurant, was completed after his death in 1991. Every aspect of the restaurant was artfully designed and curated by Kuramata and executed by a team of close friends, artisans and family. The restaurant was comprised of three distinct spaces; a lounge, dining area and sushi counter and featured acrylic forms and bold colors. Laputa also marked one of Kuramata’s first and only interiors that included works by fellow designers.
