Nendo’s Thin Black Lines

Favorite and devoutly-followed Japanese creative collective Nendo is about to stage its first solo UK exhibit during next week’s London Design Festival, presented in two parts: at the Saatchi Gallery and by Phillips de Pury & Company’s London Headquarters. True to form, Nendo’s new series, called Thin Black Lines, turns everyday objects upside-down, with a line of 29 minimal furnishings made from steel and inspired by Japanese calligraphy. Each piece forms the bare, yet striking, outline that remain after simplifying paintings of plants and animals.
