At 25, with his architecture diploma from Waseda University in Tokyo in hand, Oki Sato founded Studio nendo (the ‘n' is always in lowercase). ‘Nendo' in Japanese, means ‘modelling clay', a symbol of continual reinvention, which is, here, marked by the blueprint. Oki Sato's idea was to create a parenthetical space in people's lives through the interaction brought about by an object's design.
The exhibition at DMH is entitled ‘The Space in Between', and will feature pieces designed in the studio's early years as well as throughout Oki Sato's career. They are arranged both outside and inside the museum for an immersive experience. The presentation will discuss the challenges faced by nendo, interacting with different types of objects and their hitherto untapped dimensions. This is a magnificent exhibition that pays tribute to one of the greatest talents of Japanese minimalist design.
