The design studio Nendo (Tokyo based) is proving that functional design works perfectly when displayed as artwork. By using light as a counterpart, the objects in the spaces of Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris creates an atmospheric, visual experience. Among the objects shown in the exhibition Static Bubbles are innerblow glass tables, farming-net objects, and acrylic bookshelves. What connects these objects of different materials is a “lightness of being”, with a resistance to gravity in their appearance. At the same time, their functional purpose becomes evident for the visitor.
