Airy, with constructive details linked to Japanese tradition, the Torii modular seats play with round edged volumes, thin profiles and the apparent formal simplicity of an extremely detailed design. The dining little armchairs are the result of the in-depth research carried out to find the best way to express the sophisticated simplicity of the craftsmanship.
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.
