The idea was to create a chair made of four aluminum “wigs and a seat. While the aluminum structure of all of the chairs is the same, five upper portion unit variations feature differing shapes, colors, and materials.

Oki Sato – Nendo Studio 

Oki Sato, born in 1977 in Toronto, Canada, studied architecture at Waseda University in Tokyo. He obtained his Master’s degree in 2002. In the same year, the nendo studio was born in Tokyo. Now he has taken up the international stage, with offices in Tokyo and Milan.

Nendo, meaning ‘modelling clay’, expresses his desire of having certain flexibility and the ability to reinvent oneself. The designer takes his inspiration from Japanese uncluttered style to create a language of his time.
The philosophy of Oki Sato is reflected in his designs, thanks to which he transforms the interactions of people with the objects surrounding them by creating a parenthesis in their life.
This desire is found in the uncluttered and characteristic shapes of his designs, to which he always adds a touch of humour and conviviality.
