COS × nendo Salone del Mobile 2014 from cosstores on Vimeo.
Last week, we decamped to Milan for the international furniture fair, Salone del Mobile. The seven day fair is traditionally a show with two purposes; firstly to launch new products, secondly to inspire and delight with all things design.
A hot name on the circuit was Japanese designer nendo. The name popped up in association with several brands over the week, but it was the studio’s winning collaboration with high street fashion store COS that stood out for us. For COS, nendo created an ethereal installation using the clothing store’s signature white shirts and custom metal frames – an ode to minimal aesthetics and clean cut lines, the two brands were a perfect match. COS will also be selling a selection of nendo’s pieces, including candle holders, vases and tea sets, so your home can look as smartly dressed as you.
