The renowned Japanese design company Nendo, structured around chief designer Oki Sato, has been dedicated a solo exhibit in Tokyo this month.The show is entitled “Playful Shadowz” and features roughly 50 pieces from the Nendo collection including furniture, lightings and interior products that have never been released in Japan before. Additionally, the company's more artistic pieces on the subject of “black” including thin black lines (released in 2010 in London) and K% (released in Milano Salone in 2012) are on display at the special event space. Gestalten is pleased to publish a monograph with Nendo this summer.
