Nendo

Oki Sato, born in 1977 in Toronto, Canada, studied architecture at Waseda University in Tokyo. He obtained his Master’s degree in 2002. In the same year, the nendo studio was born in Tokyo. Now he has taken up the international stage, with offices in Tokyo and Milan.

Nendo, meaning ‘modelling clay’, expresses his desire of having certain flexibility and the ability to reinvent oneself. The designer takes his inspiration from Japanese uncluttered style to create a language of his time. The philosophy of Oki Sato is reflected in his designs, thanks to which he transforms the interactions of people with the objects surrounding them by creating a parenthesis in their life. This desire is found in the uncluttered and characteristic shapes of his designs, to which he always adds a touch of humour and conviviality.

Oki Sato’s first exhibition “Streeterior” was shown in Tokyo and Milan in 2003. He then went on to receive numerous prizes: Good Design Award, German Design Award, Elle Deco International Design Award and was named 2012 Designer of the Year by British magazine Wallpaper*. Several of his creations can be seen in museums such as the Museum of Modern Art of New York, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

Among his many collaborations: Lasvit, Cappellini, Moroso, DePadova, Starbucks, Puma. Recently the studio also took part in Milan Design Week, produced an installation called “Rain Bottle” at the September 2014 show of MAISON&OBJET PARIS and various exhibitions at the National Design Center in Singapore and at the Orgatec in Cologne.
