Stockholm Furniture Fair: Installation and lounge by Nendo

Mr. Oki Sato, chief designer and founder of Nendo Design Studio was the guest of honor this year at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and has produced an installation creating the illusion of snow-capped mountain peaks soaring into the sky. “We’ ve laser cut more than 100 plastic foam sheets and transformed them into this landscape that expresses how the design process begins and evolves, from a simple idea to a finished expression. This is a method that illustrates our design philosophy,” explains Oki Sato. He was born and grew up in Tokyo in 1977, where he trained as an architect but spends 1-2 weeks each month in Europe.

Visually speaking is has been very beautiful and just entering the fair ground, one of the absolute highlights of the show!

Oki Sato, jefe de diseño y fundador de Nendo Design Studio has sido el invitado de honor este año en la Feria del Mueble de Estocolmo y ha producido para ésta una instalación donde montañas cubiertas de nieve parecen crecer hasta el cielo. “Hemos cortado por láser más de 100 planchas de espuma y las hemos transformado en paisajes procurando expresar donde comienza un proceso de diseño y como evoluciona desde una simple idea hasta un producto terminado. Se trata de un método que describe nuestra filosofía de diseño”, explica Oki Sato quien nació 1977 en Tokio donde fue educado como arquitecto Tokio y pasa 1-2 semanas por mes en Europa.

La instalación fue preciosa a nivel visual, ¡y para mi uno de los platos fuertes de toda la feria!
