Nendo x Kokuyo: New Office Arrangements

Nendo x Kokuyo

In collaboration with Japanese office brand Kokuyo, Japanese design brand Nendo has created a collection of unconventional furniture set-ups, responding to the need for new workspace environments that reflect how the way we work is changing. The range was unveiled at Orgatec 2014 in Cologne last month – a trade show dedicated to the modern office.

The five unusual configurations amalgamate desks and storage into unexpected typographies to suit the different needs of modern office workers. A large-scale workspace combines several desks for multiple users, for example, while a desk situated inside a shelving unit allows for a contained private space. Crafted from thin sheets of matt black iron, the pieces have a grid-like geometric form that creates graphic silhouettes.
