The Tokyo based designers of Nendo will be present at this year’s London Design Festival with a solo exhibition at Saatchi Gallery, curated by Phillips de Pury & Company. The collection of delicate metal furniture includes a series of graphical hanger racks, which represent an experimental discourse about the space between two and three dimensions.
“Outlines were the theme of this collection. Slight black lines like the traces of sketches drawn
in the air made transparent surfaces and volumes appear, which we assigned practical functions.
The outlines remained after simplifying paintings of plants and animals.
They are condensed expressions of meaning, similar to Japanese calligraphy”, the designers explain.
“The designs gently break the relationship of before and behind, and traverse at times the space
between two and three dimensions. Multi-faceted and constantly morphing, they move alternately
between the becoming and collapse of form.”
The exhibition will be open from September 20th to October 31st, 7days a week at Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York’s HQ, King’s Road London SW3 4SQ
