Without a doubt one of the most diligent design teams in Japan, Oki Sato’s much-acclaimed practice Nendo has recently unveiled their latest series of products which are to be launched as part of the 1% collection during the upcoming edition of Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2012. Among them, this series of minimalist, stackable vases called ‘Block.’ Available in four different sizes, the subdued, understated vases will be produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces as ‘to give owners the chance to experience the joy of owning 1%.’

More about the vases:

 

‘A set of small bud vases that can be stacked together like building blocks. The vase comes in four different sizes, carefully measured to fit together without disturbing the vase on the bottom. With careful stacking, the cases can accommodate a tall flower by running it through the vase on the top.’

More about the 1% products:

 

’100 is the perfect amount: they’re neither one-off “works of art” nor mass-produced products made in the millions. Whether its the skill of the artisans or new technologies, we want to make things that are only possible because there are 100 of them. Not more, not less. To give owners the chance to experience the joy of owning 1%.’
