Designed by the Nendo studio, this side table is an icon of refined simplicity. Solid cast aluminium with a Bronze or Black Coffee varnished finish and comes in two versions, both with oval-shaped tops: one version has a more generous surface, but a lower height, ideal for a lounge situation, while the other has a smaller top, but is taller in height. Also available in an outdoor version.
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.
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.
