Visit The Victoria & Albert Museum, London

Nendo’s Mimicry Chairs comprise a series of elegant chair installations appearing in varying locations throughout the Museum. Japanese design studio Nendo has created a simple chair archetype made from pressed and punched metal painted white giving it an almost ghost-like appearance. These chairs will be placed within the Grand Entrance and further locations throughout the Museum including galleries, staircases and corridors. At each site, the chair is modified to mimic the space it inhabits and the objects around it. In some locations visitors may sit on the chairs and observe and appreciate the collections from different perspectives.
