For a long time, Fukasawa was the design world's favorite secret. The Japanese industrial designer has influenced a generation of peers and students looking to mimic his refined aesthetic of elegance and minimalism. Now rather better known—a monograph of his work was published in 2007—Fukasawa nonetheless remains low-key in his approach to both publicity and design.
