Japanese designers Nendo will draw black and white floorboards that appear to flow around plinths for their solo show at the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute later this month.
The walls of the second room will be curved as though visitors are walking through the image in a fish-eye lens.
Photographs are by Daici Ano.
The information below is from Nendo:
Nendo’s solo exhibition in Taiwan will be held by the end of August.
“Nendo’s solo exhibition” design concept
A solo show at the Taiwanese government-sponsored National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute featuring two collections.
‘Thin black lines’ is a collection of furniture formed from ‘still black’, so we wanted to use ‘active black on white’ for the exhibition space. The drawings on the floor flow like river water around the exhibition stands.
‘Dancing squares’ is a collection based on the concept of ‘active white’, so we wanted a space that expressed the idea of ‘still black on white’.
Our room-sized sketch, affixed to walls and floor, uses a fish-eye lens-like effect as though viewers are seeing it through a tiny water drop.
