nendo

nendo is the name of the 70-person Tokyo studio of industrial designer Oki Sato. Born in Toronto, Canada in 1977, today Sato is one of the world’s most prolific designers, working for brands as varied as Fritz Hansen, Stellar Works, Wonder Glass, Moroso, Flos and Minotti. “nendo” means “clay” in Japanese, and the studio prides itself on being as flexible as that venerable material.
