Founded during the Meiji era as a glass making company in Nishi-ku, Nagoya, Kato made a name for itself manufacturing cutting edge designs of which post-modern service is a prime example. You cannot get more 80s than this.

Fujimori was born in Japan in 1935, graduated college in 1956, where he majored in oil painting and design. Aged just 19 he won the National Art Award, later followed by a string of awards throughout the late 70's and early 80's including the Grand Prix at the Nitten Exhibition (totally major Japanese art organisation) in 1980.

After working in Chicago as a ceramics designer, he returned to Japan in 1963 where he became a freelance designer for companies in Nagoya.

As the Art Director for Kato Kogei Ceramics, a major supplier of fine ceramics to the international market, Fujimori oversaw the design and distribution of his signature line.
