Novalis Art Design is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Japanese designer Umeda Masanori in Hong Kong. The exhibition presents a chance to view internationally renowned designer Umeda Masanori’s work across his career, including the rarely exhibited TAWARAYA, an icon of the Memphis Group in 1981. As a pioneering and dexterous designer, Umeda’s work crosses all sorts of boundaries before it became a common practice, from blurring the lines of furniture, system, and space via the Mobile Supply System and TAWARAYA to bridging art and design through the sculptural GETSUEN. His creations are outlandish yet functional, mischievous yet spiritual, and referential of history but also responding to relevant social conditions. One thing that has been present in his creative process is his keen observations of the human experience. Despite the changes in form, Umeda’s work has always been derived from life, be it his own lived experience, appreciation of both the historical and the contemporary, love for high and low brow cultures, or a respect for nature. With a multi-disciplinary and international training, Umeda has always forged his own path, creating designs that are true to himself. Until today, he continues to be inspired by life, drawing and designing daily with a direct attitude and quirky humour.
