Stone Garden. International Design Show, Toronto, Canada, January 24 - 27, 2013

 

Created to mark nendo's international Guest of Honor Award at the 2013 IDS in Toronto, the Japanese studio presented 'Stone Garden' an installation conceived as clusters of one-legged tables hold each other up by overlapping. created without using any nails or screws to secure the tables to each other, the exhibit incorporates modularity, allowing for the option to change the depth and direction of the placement grouping, forming to freely fit within the environment - like how an amoeba adapts to its surroundings. since the tables are stabilized by the weight of other tables, caeserstone - a crushed natural quartz was implemented for the tabletop surface, creating a new kind of ground surface seeming to float like a garden in the universe.
