Spectral spaces: Nendo takes the chair at V&A

13 : 09 : 2012 Design : Collection : Peter Firth

London – Japanese design studio Nendo has created an installation that will be shown at the V&A Museum during the London Design Festival, and mimic the shape of the museum’s permanent collections.

The installation, called Mimicry Chairs, features a series of morphing chair shapes. Each piece is made from punched metal finished in white. The chairs are deliberately slim and ghostly so that they do not overpower the spaces they occupy.
