Currently sitting in the LAMA lobby is a clean example of one of Shiro Kuramata’s best known works, the PC/3 “Side 1”. From the Progetti Compiuti series, the PC/3 “Side 1” was first designed in 1970. Kuramata is most known for incorporating industrial materials into traditional Japanese designs, which allowed him to infuse his own Surrealist aesthetic into everyday objects. In the case of this chest of drawers, Kuramata takes a traditional design and gives it more life through undulating curves and a movable base. The PC/3 “Side 1” is composed of black-stained ash. Drawers have a matt white lacquer and brushed steel knobs. This particular example will be for sale in the upcoming October 2010 LAMA Auction at an estimate of $14,000 – 18,000.
