The Splinter Collection by Nendo is all about the details, you think that you’re looking at a simple chair, but zoom in on those details… Simply amazing!
This furniture collection was designed for Conde House, a manufacturer based in Japan’s famous Asahikawa wooden furniture region.
Nendo splintered each piece of wood as though peeling it away. Chairs’ backrests divide to become armrests and legs, and the top of the coat stand peels away to provide coat hooks.
The side table’s stand splinter to turn into three legs. Nendo kept larger pieces of wood at their original thickness to provide strength where necessary, and used thin pieces of wood that had splintered off for more delicate parts. They approached the wood gently, going with the grain so that the wood would retain its original pliancy.
