Studio SWINE

Designer

A design collective by Japanese Architect Azusa Murakami and British Artist Alexander Groves. Their work straddles between the spheres of sculpture, installations and cinema, blending poetry and research into immersive experiences. They are represented by the world renowned Pace Gallery, and their works have been collected by MoMA New York and Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Exhibited at DESIGN MIAMI.BASEL 2024 The traditional and stately Sendai Tansu, originally crafted as a samurai or merchant chest, has acquired a completely new interpretation. It combines a graphical, flat pattern inspired by Ukiyo-e prints. Inspired by the dynamic graphic geometry and flatness of Japanese woodblock prints and 1960's Metabolism, this new Tansu design playfully combines the traditional crafts and the radical architectural movements of Japan in a systematic 'functional decoration'.
