Design Nendo, 2008. Laser-cut metal plate. Made in Italy by Cappellini. Ivy, "tuta" in Japanese, grows by clinging onto and encircling the exterior surface of trees and buildings. The tuta coat rack loses the materiality of the base structure, leaving only an outline that seems to float in space. The Tuta coat-hanger features transparent plastic feet with the structure in laser-cut metal plate available polish lacquered in white or black. Under the direction of architect Oki Sato, the group that gathers under the name Nendo has produced, since 2002, a cultural and refined alternative to self-celebrated design. "Nendo" in Japanese means "clay" and their job, in the field of interior architecture, of furniture and graphics is pliable and flexible as clay. In a short few years, Nendo has received important international credits. 19.75" dia. | 11.25" d | 67" h.
