At this year’s Salone del Mobile, held on Apr 17-22 in Milan, Japanese architecture and design practice Nendo presents design professionals and aficionados an elaborate installation to marvel at. The show, entitled Forms of Movement, is held at Superstudio Più Art Point and features a wide range of final products, models and mockups of each project set across a mysterious 800 sqm. labyrinth, sharing with visitors the manufacturing process as well as the design phase. Nendo has collaborated with a number of Japanese manufacturers using special materials and technologies, and presented are ten concepts that revolve around the idea of movement and which are also defined by their delicate material and precise production techniques. Products include jewellery cases with unique openings made by cutting a spherical body, furniture made of a series of polycarbonate sheets where the softness can be altered by lamination, and tables where lines and surfaces are ambiguous due to a refined polishing process.
