japanese studio nendo presents a solo exhibition of their work at the national taiwan craft research and development institute.
on show are two of their collections: ‘thin black lines’ and ‘dancing squares’.

dancing squares‘ is based on the idea of ‘active white’, in which the studio wanted the exhibition gallery to express the notion of
‘still black on white’. the walls and floors are covered in a room-sized sketch of a living space executed using a fish-eye lens-like effect,
giving visitors the impression that they are looking through a tiny water drop.

thin black lines‘ is a collection of furniture formed from ‘still black’. for the space in which this series of furniture objects is displayed,
nendo wanted to use ‘active black on white’ to animate the space whereby drawings on the floor flow like a river of water around
the exhibition stands. the exhibition is on show until the end of august.
