Known for their minimalist, pared down aesthetics, Oki Sato’s much-acclaimed Tokyo-based practice Nendo has realised this collection of geometrical glass tables for the Italian manufacturer Moroso. Inspired, and named after the traditional Japanese screen, ‘Byobu’ comprises one circular and one rectangular model, each of which is composed of a translucent glass tabletop supported by an asymmetrical frame in either black or white finish.
more about the collection:
‘The model is a reversal of the idea of a traditional screen, deforming it asymmetrically: some parts are joined and others elongated to create an unusual and original shape which maintains the structural balance, creating at the same time optical variety. ‘
