Published by Phaidon, Nendo provides a deep, abundantly illustrated insight into one of the most legendary Japanese design studios. Founded in 2002 by Oki Sato, the Tokyo-based Nendo is an exceptionally creative and productive multidisciplinary studio, whose work has been included in museum collections worldwide, including New York’s MoMA, Centre Pompidou in Paris and Design Museum London.
Nendo's extensive, idiosyncratic body of work flows seamlessly across disciplines, and is executed in every medium imaginable – from paper clips to watches, shoes, chocolates, glassware, and furniture, all the way up to store interiors and freestanding architecture. Featuring more than 1,000 images that trace the studio's evolution and prolific output over a 15-year period, this visually rich and fascinating survey offers exclusive insight into the playful, simple, enigmatic, but always expectation-confounding designs from one of the industry's biggest names.
