Nendo’s Trace Furniture Collection

Japanese design studio Nendo has produced a series of household furniture designs incorporating linear metal elements that outline the paths of moving parts like cupboard doors and drawers.trace-container10_akihiro_yoshidatrace-container11_akihiro_yoshidatrace-container12_akihiro_yoshida

With a minimal aesthetic, the curved outlines are reminiscent of the way that doors are marked in architectural plans. They provide a visually intriguing sculptural element while simultaneously giving clues to the function of each object and guiding its use. The Trace series makes visible and celebrates the everyday movements we take for granted.

Check out the full series of designs here.
