In conjunction with the Motomi Kawakami retrospective that we previously wrote about, here is a selection of his work that you may not have gotten a sense of in the photographs of the exhibition.

NT Chair (1977), along with an amazing poster designed for the release of the chair

BLITZ folding chair (1984- 94). Renamed to TUNE in 1995.

Iconic packaging design for Blendy (1986) instant coffee. You can still find it in stores. My mom (an English teacher) hates the name.

TICINO (1991) bench

Arita Houen (2005) collection of porcelain ceramics

Kawakami himself sitting in his REGIA (2005) chair

Step Step (2008) stool and shoehorn. I love the packaging!
