Seriously... there is not a single thing on Nendo's website that I don't absolutely love. The cabbage chair and the kisala restaurant shown above are two of my favorite projects... The cabbage chair is created by the unpeeling of the many layers of pleated resin impregnated paper. I really love the sophisticated form created by such a simple material... This subtle and intelligent attention to material is a constant theme in Nendo's products and projects. The Kisala restaurant is another example where the variated tones of the floorboards help delineate the separate spaces while still adding a cohesive element to the restaurant. The use of mirrored panels and lace curtains only add to the textural quality of the space.
If you don't know Nendo's work already... check out their website. Everything on it is working a look...
