Following its debut exhibition in 2003, the nendo phenomenon has developed at an astounding pace. Under the guidance of Oki Sato, the Japanese collective has continued to impress us through the coherence and power of its vocabulary, its design that is imbued with simple,Japanese lines and given a twist not devoid of humour. Weather it iscreating furniture, objects, accessories, eating utensils or interiors and architectures, nendo responds to the most broad-ranging projects with the same natural rigour, charged with enormous inherent poetry.
Now aged 39, Oki Sato has enthusiastically accepted the CID’s invitation and for four months will take over all the interior spaces: stables, the hay store, atrium, lamps storage room… His exhibition will form an exclusivecreation, devised in close relationship with the location.
This will be a European premiere on such a scale.
