Designers Luca Nichetto and Oki Sato have teamed up to create a collection of seven co-designed, co-conceived products. After that fateful first meeting in Stockholm in December of 2012, rather than showing existing work together they decided to make products together to highlight their mutual respect and the affinity between their work.
Nendo: “A sofa like an archipelago, divided into small parts rather than one great mass.”
Nichetto: “Taking the way that Venice’s many islands are connected by narrow bridges as the image, we designed thin legs that seem to float on the water surface and connected the cushions. We also developed side tables in two different shapes.”
Nendo will also show a zig-zagging wooden bookshelf in Milan and haverefurbished the womenswear floor in the city’s La Rinascente department store.
