A new outdoor version of the Tape collection. The metal frame, is covered with the wicker-effect cord available in two colours: Mud and Licorice. Here, the couture detail of Tape - the piece of ribbon that holds the feet on to the body - takes the form of a Light Bronze-coloured metal plate.
The system offers many elements, ideal for creating relaxation areas in small outdoor spaces or on urban rooftop terraces: from the armchair to the sofa, the chaise lounge to the original open couch, chairs and coffee tables.
nendo is the name of the 70-person Tokyo studio of industrial designer Oki Sato. Born in Toronto, Canada in 1977, today Sato is one of the world’s most prolific designers, working for brands as varied as Fritz Hansen, Stellar Works, Wonder Glass, Moroso, Flos and Minotti. “nendo” means “clay” in Japanese, and the studio prides itself on being as flexible as that venerable material.
Now helmed by the third generation of the Minotti family, Rodolfo Dordoni guarantees the modern-classic aspect of the portfolio while collaborations with designers including Frenchman Christophe Delcourt and Japan’s nendo bring in fresh perspective.
