Sendai Cord Outdoor interprets the elegant, airy lines of the Sendai indoor seating collection, designed by duo Inoda+Sveje for open-air spaces. The upholstered volume, reduced and stylised through the skilful use of cord on the structure, reflects the same stylistic principle as the indoor version, but in a natural teak finish.
Inoda + Sveje
Inoda + Sveje was formed by Osaka born Kyoko Inoda and Danish Nils Sveje in 2000. Their Milan based studio and gallery draws on their respective nations traditions of expert craft, refinement and simplicity. These traditions trace a connection back to the 19th Century Scandinavian infatuation with Japanese design and their meticulous approach towards woodworking. This history is often reflected in Inoda + Sveje’s work with ultimate sophistication, careful detailing and craftsmanship as well as the respect for natural materials that is exemplified through both culture’s design heritage.
Now helmed by the third generation of the Minotti family, Rodolfo Dordoni guarantees the modern-classic aspect of the portfolio while collaborations with designers including Frenchman Christophe Delcourt and Japan’s nendo bring in fresh perspective.
