nendo will exhibit ‘print-chair’ a new furniture collection at ‘works by nendo’, a solo exhibition presented during milan design week 2014. created by overlapping different wood grain patterns onto existing timber surfaces, the seating objects become distinctive due to the implementation of new various grain details such as those found in OSB laminate board, fir, pine and oak.

 

‘for another design, we scanned the wood’s surface then printed the same pattern back onto the wood at another angle,’ explains nendo. ‘we also experimented with other materials, replacing the seat base with OSB laminate board for one chair and printing a marble pattern onto the wood for another.’

‘thanks to printing technology we could make fine adjustments like the scale, density and colors over and over, bringing out the charm and attraction of natural materials from a variety of angles.’
