Selected by Naoto Fukasawa of the Japan Design Committee, the various objects included in the exhibition ‘Optimum—The Designs of Original Forms’ are presented as exemplars of their types. In seeking the optimum form, which differs from original forms that are subject to individual creativity, the efforts their designers have undertaken to discover the absolute origins of forms becomes apparent. It is an insightful, minimalistic and inspiring collection of things and typologies from a range of notable designers. Besides texts and short explanations for each by Fukasawa, the book includes a conversation about the selection process and the intentions behind it.
