A healthy sampling of wooden materials can make all the difference to a room’s make-up. Versatile, elegant and strong and practical, wooden furniture items have stood the test of time and show no signs of relinquishing their popularity now. This superb collection entitled ‘Splinter’ from Japanese studio Nendo look as though it is ready to add further prestige to the wooden furniture tradition.
Including a chair, side table, a couple of mirrors and a coat stand, the collection has a ‘peeled’ look that the designers made every effort to heighten. As they say: “We kept larger pieces of wood at their original thickness to provide strength where necessary, and used thin pieces of wood that had splintered off for more delicate parts.”
