Nendo:Invisible out lines
Nendo presents - Invisable out line during Milan design week. Total of 16 collections have been curated and placed in the different rooms to showcase the theme that interprets the blurred boundaries, outlines and borders of objects and things.
Vases that float like jellyfish in the water. 30 vases of various sizes are placed in a 1800 mm aquarium filled with water and the strength and direction of the water’s current is carefully adjusted so that they undulate moderately. The vases are made out of ultrathin transparent silicon that has been dyed twice to give the impression that what is floating in the water is but a gradated silhouette of colours.
The design was to redefine the conventional roles of flower, water, and vase by making the water inconspicuous, with an ensemble of both flowers and vases floating inside the filled water, as opposed to simply showing off flowers in a water-filled vase.
For Jil Sander
A collaboration project where a textile pattern is created by taking a photograph of an object mounted inside a square frame, followed by a fashion item being created by Jil Sander’s creative team.
Since all the objects are pure white, the shadows and the appearance can change drastically with a slight alteration in the setting of lighting or depth of field.Hence the fixing work of the object and the shooting menu were carried out interchangeably, such as distorting the object in proportion to the distortion of the outer periphery of the lens, or instead changing the shooting method according to the object.
Subsequently, textile patterns were narrowed down to 5 types, which are check patterns made with tightly woven thread, dot patterns expressed by the depth of 82 pieces of floating cones,
grid patterns made up of the shadows of an aggregation of cubes,camouflage patterns created by the differences in the frost and clear finishes of transparent acrylic sheeting,and stripe patterns originated by a group of flat shaped pillars.
A design that was formed by converting 3 dimensional into 2 dimensional and then converting back into 3 dimensional again.
