Catalogue Note

The 'Side One' was first executed by Fujiko, Tokyo, for a short period before being produced by Cappellini in 1986. Cappellini have confirmed that this example is one of only three trial pieces produced in cherrywood before their production began. Kuramata then decided to proceed with production in black and white.
