nendo: lacquered paper objects for nilufar gallery

‘lacquered paper-objects’ by nendo for nilufar gallery, 2012 all images by masayuki hayashi and courtesy the designer

nendo has developed ‘lacquered paper-objects’, a collection of three-dimensionally printed paper-constructed series of containers for nilfur gallery to be shown during milan design week 2012. the japanese design studio created each vessel by combining sheets of paper, pasted together by a 3D printer and then carved by hand in their workshop. the final step to developing the containers includes applying the piece’s exterior with a thick lacquer in order to adhere the edges of its accumulated paper shape. the resulting object is a vessel carved from paper which greatly resembles the raw material from which the refined objects have been formed.

  • i understand you came up with a new technique, but what’s the point of making it look like a raw material, wouldn’t it be easier to make it from wood in that case ? !
