Splinter by Nendo for Conde House

Category: Design Published on 11 Dec, 2012 Tags: , , , ,

Japanese design studio Nendo have designed the “Splinter collection” for Conde House, a manufacturer based in Japan’s famous Asahikawa wooden furniture region. Each object seems to have been peeled from a single piece of wood. Chairs’ backrests divide to become armrests and legs, and the top of the coat stand peels away to provide coat hooks.

“We splintered each piece of wood as though peeling it away,” says Nendo. “We kept larger pieces of wood at their original thickness to provide strength where necessary, and used thin pieces of wood that had splintered off for more delicate parts.”  Nendo adds “We approached the wood gently, going with the grain so that the wood would retain its original pliancy,”
