The Poetry Of Moving Furniture By Nendo

Once again, Japanese design practice Nendo has come up with an imaginative product that combines minimal design with a clever function.

The studio’s latest ‘Trace Collection consists of a container, a counter and light, displaying the movements of everyday use in a poetic way. Aiming to pay more attention to movements in spacial design, Nendo’s pieces were commissioned by and are part of the Collective Design fair in New York City. Made from wood, the visible movement traces are made from metal.

Speaking of the inspiration behind the design, the studio says: “Within the space where we live there are items that ‘move’. They are furniture, doors and windows – items that move in relation to our daily activities. Although they may not be visible, we are subconsciously aware of the ‘traces’ of their movements every day. (…) A new relationship between items and human beings is being pursued through the visualization of the numerous ‘traces’ that we feel within our everyday lives.” For more furniture products, take a look at our shop!
