Biography

With offices in Tokyo and Milan, Nendo creates head-turning interior design, for example a series of lamps, tables, and vessels made from heated agricultural nets that look like bionic jellyfish suspended in midair, and Nendo’s glass tables with long, thin legs are as striking as something intentionally invisible can be. Nendo’s activity in the design world has not been limited to any one area but is rather multifarious, spanning from graphic and product design to designing furniture, installations, windows, interiors and even reaching into the realm of architecture. Nendo has collaborated with a host of luxury brands including Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Tod’s.
