Inspired by the bamboo furniture of Taiwan, Nendo applied bamboo-bending technique to tubular stainless steel. The union of the ancient handcraft with the mass production material resulted in a furniture series, which consists of a lounge chair, an armchair, a barstool and two tables.
A distinct feature of bamboo bending technique was used while processing steel: precision cut steel pipes wrapped around another to form the seating structure, which gave the hard metal a sense of pliancy. The seating surfaces of the chairs are lasercut to form the hexagon patterns which enhance seating comfort.
The series is a contemporary re-interpretation of traditional bamboo furniture. Starting from 2013 the chairs are in mass production, and the Tables remain hand-made to order and in numbered edition.
