A new collection of shelves and tables by nendo that express a “slide” of position by focusing on the technology that bonds glass to glass.
Each item is made of glass, and then one black sheet of glass is bonded in a way so that it appears that it has slid from its original position. These shelves were a particular challenge to develop for the designers at nendo since the black glass that is sticking out has to be attached to transparent glass using an extremely small area of the cross-section.
The tables look as though the surface on top of the black box has been opened in a slightly slid position. However since a transparent glass has been placed there, things can be placed on the table top. The inside of the box was evenly painted white to prevent the inside from becoming dark, concurrently creating a contrast to the exterior of the box.
This project will be exhibited at nendo’s solo exhibition “nendo works 2014-2015" at Museo della Permanente where over 100 of nendo’s latest works will be showcased.
