Nendo presented two exhibitions of their work in Paris last week: furniture that's only stable when objects are placed on it and another  collection at Carpernters Workshop Gallery that includes containers made of agricultural netting, tables with glass tops that have been allowed to flow outside their frames and huge blown-glass bubbles trapped in steel coffee tables.
