The Japanese studio's 50 Manga Chairs are each based on the abstract lines and grids used in graphics for the comic books.
Based in the heart of the Chelsea art district, the gallery is now showcasing the collection in a dedicated space where projections play across the walls.
"This installation of 50 Manga Chairs is the result of adapting the strong symbolic nature of manga comics to furniture design," said Nendo. "The original animation for this exhibition is also projected on the wall of the gallery."
The animation features moving lines and dots that change from white to black, and flow into different configurations in a loop.
These graphics are projected across the gallery, reflecting off the polished stainless steel furniture to create further effects.
Nendo, founded by designer Oki Sato, has a variety of chairs in its huge portfolio of projects – Sato once told Dezeen that he works on 400 projects at a time.
Friedman Benda also works with designers like Paul Cocksedge, Byung Hoon Choi and the Campana brothers. Its recent exhibitions have included a showcase of early work by Memphis group founder Ettore Sottsass.
