  • Catalogue Essay

    The Nendo installation ‘Mimicry Chairs’ comprises a series of elegant chair installations that appeared throughout the Victoria and Albert Museum. Working in contrast to the ofen ornate
    museum surroundings, the studio created a simple chair archetype fnished in white to give it an ethereal appearance. The chairs have been modifed and morphed to mimic the particular space they inhabit as well as the surrounding objects. Nendo is run by Oki Sato and Akihiro Ito who have completed scores of projects all over the world since their formation in 2002, ranging in scale from small handheld items, lighting and furniture to major exhibitions and retail interiors.
