Japanese design studio and M.E. favourites Nendo are currently preparing for a solo exhibition called 'Dancing Squares' which will open at Art Stage in Singapore next week.
Running from the 13th to the 16th of January, the show features Nendo's take on the square, assembled to create a sense of motion in this series of objects which consists of a lamp, a shelving unit, a stool and a table.
A bookshelf is frozen in its cascade of tumbling planes, creating variety in the way books can be stacked; the stool’s twist endows it with visual play and the table leans as though falling away, making objects placed on it seem to sink into its folds and sways.
We particularly love the lamps, which are designed to roll about casting light and shadow in different directions.
"The different ‘movements’ make balance and unbalance overlap, as though we are watching the planes themselves dance." say Nendo.
