Whatever to say about Hiroshi Sugimoto is probably already said or written, nevertheless Design One can not miss the chance to mark this prolific and unique artist. Born in Tokyo, 1948, he graduated from St. Paul University, Tokyo and 4 years later form Art Center College of Design, LA. Although in 1974 he moves to New York where he is living until today, his works could be seen from Tokyo through Dusseldorf ¬†and Edinburgh to San Francisco. Sugimoto art approach however remains unseen – he studies mathematical, physical or other science’s law or principle and interprets it in marvelously aesthetic manner to finely flourish in minimal perfect product. His works might seem to some as rare industrial design pieces but thats exactly where his benchmark is – to cut the thin line between object d’art and industrial design not in term of usage, but of creation.
