Nendo's monochrome solo exhibition

Friday, 26 August 2011

Japanese designers Nendo have created monotone rooms to showcase their work at the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute. Split into two rooms, Nendo's solo show later this month will display both their Thin Black Lines and Dancing Squares projects.

The first room will feature black drawings on a white base and vice versa; and the second room will be curved to give visitors a sense of walking through a fish-eye lens image.

 The exhibition design is based on the idea that colours can be expressed differently through shape and movement. "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,” explains Nendo.
