Nendo created colourful knitted covers for the Pooh Table collection of maple wood furniture so the designs represent the famous yellow bear and his companions.
"To reflect the stories' setting in the Hundred Acre Wood, the tables use natural-feel maple extensively, and come in sizes and silhouettes intended to recall the stories' characters," said Nendo.
The largest table has a red knit covering a shelf beneath it's top, similar to the sweater worn by Winnie the Pooh.
His close friend Piglet is depicted as a three-legged side table wearing a purple sleeve across most of its top.
Forlorn donkey Eeyore is channelled through a table with a surface that droops to the floor, dressed in grey fabric.
Bouncy tiger Tigger's orange tail is mimicked by a table's stand, which extends down past where it branches into three legs.
A design with surfaces at two heights looks like kanagroo mother-and-son pair Kanga and Roo, while Rabbit is identified by knitted socks on two legs of another table in the collection.
The Winnie the Pooh stories were written by AA Milne in the 1920s for his son Christopher Robin, who also features in the tales.
The stories were commercialised by American producer Stephen Slesinger in the 1930s, when the cartoon characters we recognise today were first created.
Following his death, the rights to the Winnie-the-Pooh franchise were licensed to animation studio Walt Disney Productions in 1961.
Nendo created this series for Disney's Japanese branch, which has one of its Disneyland resorts in Tokyo.
