nendo’s tent collection for cappellini can be placed by a sofa or bed while the round cover shape can be moved in order to face the opening to the required direction. available in different heights and sizes, the tables have an inner lighting system that highlights the items inside, revealing a possible use as a display case. the tent collection is no stranger to nendo’s attention to detail, as it features an undulated border at the bottom.

comprised of a desk and four consoles, the series is a family of tents, some taller, some wider, but all with the round-shaped opening. made of plated metal, the desk is slightly different as its interior has been finished in fabric, resulting in a sound buffering effect that allows the user to focus on work in the enclosed space.
