The Border Table: How minimal can you be?

Nendo’s Border Table, created for exhibition at the Eye Of Gyre, asks the question of how minimal a table can be.

Designed for Tokyo Designers Week in 2015, the Border Table is initially difficult to grasp as furniture. With furniture known for being designed as for mass production and mass use, a design like the Border Table stands alone.

With this in mind, Nendo’s Border Table plays with the ideas between space and furniture. Walking a line between furniture and art exhibit, the table verifies how we are supposed to view design and usefulness. The mysterious tables are built using 5mm square metal rods, adorned with a small tabletops measuring a radius of 100mm.

The design utilizes the elements of space and artistic expression as a part of structure, through what Nendo is calling a “parasitizing” of the table onto the corners or edges of the walls. This makes the table seem like an abstract sketch in the real world space of a room.
