Shigeo Fukuda

The Solitary Prankster

Graphis #317 Sept/Oct 1998

He is an intellectual schemer, a psychological trickster. A seat that doesn't stand up, a coffee cup with a handle on the inside, a two-headed screw, three-bladed scissors let people rest with their mistaken visual assumptions, Fukuda has made a place for himself in the design scene on which no one seems especially inclined to infringe.
