Mimicry Chairs by Nendo


Japanese design studio Nendo has announced an upcoming installation at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum during the London Design Festival this September. Titled Mimicry Chairs, the installation will feature “transparent” metal chairs placed throughout the museum. 

The clean white furniture contrasts with the ornate interior decoration of the museum, while each slightly different set of chairs responds to its surroundings accordingly. The studio encourages visitors to sit on them and take time to observe, allowing them to appreciate the museum in a new way. 

The chairs will be placed in the main entrance of the museum and 10 other locations during London Design Festival, which runs from September 14-23 2012.
