The refined elegance of Nendo's Japanese minimalism abstracts the brand's styles to reinterpret them in a contemporary key.
A rigorous and at the same time poetic approach that points to the essence of the design investigation where the steam-bent wood declines a single structural detail, able to focus attention on each element of the SINGLE CURVE COLLECTION: small table, dining table and stool in the version with three or four legs. On the base, consisting of two distinct wooden elements, rests the long top of the dining table which is part of the SINGLE CURVE COLLECTION. A structure in beech that reveals its precious steam-bent detail through the transparency of the glass top, also available in the marble and wooden version.
