Nendo's Border Table is an experimentation in space-object relations

For their solo show at Tokyo Designers Week 2015, Nendo created a line of experimental tables. The exhibition entitled “Eye of Gyre” featured a stripped down, white cube space of the Olmotesando gallery with equally minimal, black steel objects scattered around. The Border Table collection was born from a realisation about the connection between mass-production and they way furniture is designed. When creating any kind of piece for wider use, the main criteria is that is has to fit a number of environments, most of that are unpredictable for the designer. This has a very restrictive power over the designer and eventually leads to the creation of furniture with “average specifications”, making designs identical in function and look.

Nendo intended to break out of this circle and create alternative pieces that demonstrate new relations between space and object, yet are still fully functional in a variety of contexts. The set out from the empty gallery space in Tokyo, and took its ‘problematic’ elements as starting points. Corners are traditionally difficult to make use of, just like columns, pillars, plinths standing seemingly functionless. The Border Tables balance out their presence with a sleek 5 mm square rod and a round tabletop of just 10 mm in diameter. The unusual form fits seamlessly into the obtrusive elements of the space, making them functional with a minimal gesture.
