Chair exhibit by Japanese design group nendo to debut in Milan
Mar 31, 2016

In conjunction with Italian furniture fair Salone del Mobile di Milano, Japanese design group nendo’s installation of polished aluminum chairs, each with its own personality, will make its European debut at Basilica Minore di San Simpliciano. The exhibit will come to the Friedman Benda gallery in New York, from September 8 to October 15. Nendo, the design group behind the installation, has received a number of awards, including the Iconic Award for Interior Designer of the Year in 2015, Wallpaper* magazine’s Designer of the Year in 2012, and Germany’s Red Dot Design Award in 2008.

“The chairs are happy, distressed, embarrassed, surprised; they leap and bound, zoom past, or slowly slink away,” explains the gallery. “Each chair has its own personality, allowing it to stand on its own or, when placed next to the others, to become part of a collective narrative. A different configuration creates a different story; the chairs come alive in a symphonious display of nendo’s playful Japanese design.”
