Tokyo-based studio Nendo Studio, a design firm led by designer Oki Sato created a piece of art with dining room furniture for the gallery spaces inside Japan’s Kengo Kuma-designed pavilion, where the highlight is a black chair.
These black and white images show the amazing creation and the optical illusion effect created by them. Speaking about the world event’s theme of food, the cool space features a long dining room table with high dining room chairs.
The dining area design has all been made in collaboration with different traditional Japanese craftsmen within the country’s local industry.
Here you can see how tall these modern chairs are.
Althought we can admire the chair design, these type of dining chairs will not fit in a common dining area!
One of last Nendo Studio’s works was for Seibu department store. A design renovation for a women’s hat store on the second floor of the Seibu Shibuya department store. In order to utilize this environment, cylindrical structures are irregularly positioned so as to create the sensation of being enveloped in huge clounds. See more information at the Nendo Studio’s website.
Oki Sato from Nendo Studio was born in Toronto, Canada and has an M.A. in Architecture from the Waseda University in Tokyo. In 2015 he participated in several privite exhbitions: “chocolatexture lounge” at Maison & Objet in Paris; “tokyo tribal collection” at Maison & Objet in Singapore; “nendo works 2014-2015″ at Milan Design Week in Milan; and “nendo 3/3″ EYE OF GYRE in Tokyo.
