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.

Designed to showcase their Thin Black Lines and Dancing Squares projects, the exhibition will be divided into two rooms - one with black drawings on white and the other with white on black.

The walls of the second room will be curved as though visitors are walking through the image in a fish-eye lens.

“Nendo’s solo exhibition” design concept

A solo show at the Taiwanese government-sponsored National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute featuring two collections.

Solo Exhibition by Nendo

'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.

    Amazing wood..wood as water

    I think they got too famous too quickly… quality has really gone down by now…

      I see nothing in these images to support that claim.

  • Mks

    Extraordinary work. Very clean very sharp.

  • Nendo never seizes to amaze with simplicity.

  • Arfan Sahib

    Echoes of Ryoan-ji Zen garden in Kyoto. The whole design is culturally Japanese, not just “minimalism”.
