Design Naoto Fukasawa, 2011
Aluminum, stainless steel, wood
Made by Alessi

The core of Naoto Fukasawa's project Shiba lies in the consideration that, at the end of the day, in your private life, you tend to use in your kitchen a very limited number of pots and pans compared to the traditional concept of cookware. So Fukasawa limited himself to designing only those that are strictly necessary, with his characteristic minimalist rigor.

Naoto Fukasawa was born in Yamanashi Prefecture and graduated from Tama Art University in 1980. He has worked with Seiko Epson, designing wristwatch & wristTV technology; LCD TVs, LCD projectors and other equipment. He has designed a number of products utilizing state-of-the-art technology for start-up companies and for big brand name computer and communications related companies, and has won numerous design awards in Europe and the United States.

Naoto Fukasawa

Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa (b. 1956) graduated from Tama Art University in 1980 and quickly began working as a designer for the Seiko-Epson corporation. He came to the United States in 1989 and started working for the then upstart ID Two company, which employed only 15 people at the time. In 1996, he helped to set up their Tokyo office and served as its head while they became known as IDEO. Fukasawa remained with the company until 2003 when he established his own company, Naoto Fukasawa Design. To focus on household appliances and sundries, he created the ±0 brand, but was also becoming well known around the same time for products such as MUJI’s CD player (which is in MoMA’s permanent collection), mobile phones “Infobar” and “Neon,” as well as new works with Italian companies B&B Italia, Driade, Magis, Artemide, Danese, and Boffi.

Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombé, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
