Most Influential Industrial Designer
The Noguchi Museum is pleased to announce that designer Jasper Morrison and architect Yoshio Taniguchi will receive the second annual Isamu Noguchi Award.
“Jasper Morrison is one of the world’s most influential industrial designers. His talent for creating objects that are defined by their simplicity and fit seamlessly within their surroundings, are just two of his many affinities with Isamu Noguchi (…)
He is profoundly and purposefully cosmopolitan.
He is as comfortable with the stonework of Italian marble quarries and the traditional wood and paper industries of Japan, as he is with the high-precision metal forming and electronics(…)
He is the rare designer whose work combines art with industry in the clear service of making a better world.”
