Thin Black Lines (21400 mm chair) Chair, 2010
This is a chair. It was designed by nendo. It is dated 2010 and we acquired it in 2014. Its medium is bent and welded powder-coated steel rods. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Pared down to its basic components, this chair is a study in outline and form. The steel rods resemble sketched lines drawn in the air—simple graphic elements that create and define surface and volume. Like an optical illusion, the chair seems to change shape, depending on the viewer’s perspective.
