Thick Black Lines: Furniture from Nendo

Nendo, an industrial design and architecture company in Tokyo, created Thick Black Lines for an exhibition at Saatchi Gallery following the theme of "outlines."

Thick Black Lines materialized like the paths of sketches in air, creating volumes and space from only line. "They are condensed expressions of meaning, similar to Japanese calligraphy," and they break down the relationship of time, space and purpose. "Multi-faceted and constantly morphing, they move alternately between the becoming and collapse of form."
