Woven Table by nendo

Woven Table by nendo

Woven Table is a table collection created by Tokyo-based designer nendo. The collection was designed for “nendo: invisible outlines,” a large-scape retrospective exhibition held at Grand-Hornu in the suburbs of Mons, Belgium. Grand-Hornu, listed in 2012 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, was formerly a colliery that turned into a museum.

Lines can be weaved into baskets or mesh and create a “surface”. However, an ambiguous expression was the objective of this collection where the detailing of a portion of the smooth surface was weaved, so that it can look as though the “lines” are in the process of forming a “surface”, or conversely the “surface” can look as though they are being disassembled into “lines”.

Since the shape cannot be made from one single metal surface, each individual part was created and then seamlessly interconnected and meticulously polished. After partially masking, the mesh was slightly emphasized with two slightly different shades of white.
