Fishline Chair by Nendo


Tokyo-based design studio Nendo has experimented with innovative finishes in its new Fishline Chair. Rather than the wooden chair being painted or finished, it has been completely wrapped in hundreds of metres of transparent fishing line.

To achieve different colours, the thread is first dyed before being painstakingly wound around each section of the chair to create “a new lustre and fine unevenness”. This adds colour and an interesting finish while allowing the grain to show through. 

The chairs will be debuted at the biennial design exhibition Interieur 2012 in Belgium from September 20-28 2012.
