Delicate and striking: for the Thin Black Table, Nendo designed a low geometric structure – created from the L-shaped intersection of two off-axis cubes – that supports an ultralight glass table top.
The clever interlocking transparency of the matte anthracite metal structure of the Thin Black Table is reminiscent of an Escher labyrinth – a decidedly eye-catching piece that gives a peculiar allure to any setting.
Under the direction of architect Oki Sato, the group that gathers under the name Nendo has represented since 2002 a cultured and refined alternative to self-celebrative design. "Nendo" in Japanese means "clay" and their job, in the field of the interior architecture, of furniture and graphics is pliable and flexible as clay. Facing with personality and determination the challenges of contemporary designing, Nendo got in few years important international credits.
