Sneak Peek at  Nendo’s New Wooden furniture Collection, Splinter for Conde House that will presented at the imm cologne, Germany from the 14-20th of January 2013!

We love Nendo, and felt that we jut HAD to show you the sneak preview of their new collection seeing as they won Wallpaper Magazine Designer of the 2012!

 

A furniture collection designed for CONDE HOUSE, a manufacturer based in Japan’s famous Asahikawa wooden furniture region. We splintered each piece of wood as though peeling it away. Chairs’ backrests divide to become armrests and legs, and the top of the coat stand peels away to provide coat hooks.

 

The side table’s stand splinter to turn into three legs. We kept larger pieces of wood at their original thickness to provide strength where necessary, and used thin pieces of wood that had splintered off for more delicate parts. We approached the wood gently, going with the grain so that the wood would retain its original pliancy.
