    'Mimicry Chairs', London Design Festival, Red Room, The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 14-23 September 2012

  • Catalogue Essay

    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. The Nendo installation ‘Mimicry Chairs’ comprises a series of elegant chair installations that appeared throughout the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Working in contrast to the often ornate museum surroundings, the studio created a simple white chair archetype finished in white to give it an ethereal appearance. The chairs have been modified and morphed to mimic the particular space they inhabit as well as the surrounding objects.
