"Nendo hones its unusual charm"
- New York Times

Dezeen Wire:
design critic Alice Rawsthorn interviews Japanese designer Oki Sato of Nendo about how the company got its name, the humour and stories behind their work and his current preoccupation with glass-blowing - New York Times

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.
