If you’re a true design lover, we may say that it’s impossible for you not to heard about the amazing Japanese architect, Arata Isozaki! He was the winner of the renowned design award, Pritzker, in year 2019, and it’s not hard to understand why: Arata’s architecture projects are remarkable, and Contemporary Lighting want to tell you everything about it!
Arata has more than 60 years of experience in the field, yes, it’s not a mistake – more than 60 years in the field of architecture! In the sixties, he was already considered a pioneer, for mixing different cultures and understanting how they influence design. A portfolio with more than 100 stunning design projects, characterized by the ‘Ma’ concept. Continue scrolling!
Arata has several design projects spread all over the globe, with a unique contemporary touch. Responsible for presenting the Japanese culture to the world, he is the creator of the ‘Ma’ exposition about space and time of Japan, in the Gallery Arts Museum of Paris.
As we already know, contemporary design is the result of a mixture of different aesthetics and it’s always evolving. The japanese architecture takes this in consideration, and evaluates the latest design trends to add his peculiar touch.
Contemporary means ‘at the moment’, which makes this style particularly hard to define. Dating back to the 1970s, this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics. In it, you can see nods to modern, traditional, art deco and even futuristic design. At the end, it means that contemporary style is always evolving. Nowadays, it can be defined by neutral colors, clean an curved lines and minimalism.
Arata Isozaki is the creator of these luurious bold designs that challenge the rules of architecture and redefines it.
The Palladium project is probably one of the most well known projects of the designer – in May of 1985, an old theater in New York was rebuilt as a night club, and this was the final result of Aratas’s work: a vibrant, electric design incorporated in a classical environment. The owners were Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, also known for being the owners of the famous club, Studio 54.
We have to say that this is one of our fvorite rooms of the Palladium! A room full of vibrant colors and textures.
“Arata Isozaki is at the same time a great eminence of Japanese architecture and the source of some of his most recent design development. And all facets of Mr. Isozaki are visible in the Palladium”
