Design Studios | 364 views

Japanese design studio Nendo has been awarded the Designer of the Year title for this year’s Maison&Objet and will create a “chocolate lounge” at the Paris trade fair.

Following a prolific 2014 – which saw Nendo design ranges for Disney as well as eyewear, umbrellas, furniture, shirts,  and interiors – the studio founded by designer Oki Sato has been named as this year’s recipient of the Maison&Objet Designer of the Year accolade.

Nendo was asked to design a lounge for visitors to the upcoming edition of the biannual furniture and interiors show later this month. The studio has also created a range of nine chocolates moulded into unusual shapes within a 26-millimetre cube.

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.
