japanese design studio nendo has conceived a collection of ‘mimicry chairs’ composed of pressed and punched metal and lacquered white to give it a ghost-like aesthetic. the project’s philosophy is generated through reinterpreting and multiplying a single white chair in ten different ways, where the series will then appear in ten varying locations throughout the V&A victoria & albert museum during 2012 london design festival – the experience beginning in the main entrance of the museum. the journey then carries on throughout the space – positioning the chairs in galleries, staircases and corridors. each design has been carefully created to reflect and ‘mimic’ the location in which it is placed – poetically communicating the relationship an object shares with its environment.
