Designer: nendo (Oki Sato)
The industrial design studio nendo, metaphorically splintered each piece of the Splinter Collection’s wood frame, by bold use of bent and laminated technology. The elegantly detailed finger-joint intersection of the curved back cross sections, peel away, while ingeniously forming pliable, graceful off-shoots of pure sculpture. A masterpiece of woodwork. The result: light-footed furniture with a soft, particularly smooth surface.
