12/04/2017 - During the Milano Design Week the Jil Sander showroom at via Beltrami hosted the exhibition Nendo: Invisible outlines. The installation, made by the study directed by Oki Sato, investigates the matter and its relationship with space, making a comparison between visible and invisible, internal and external.

Among the protagonists of the space there are silicon jellyfish-shaped vases, tables and objects with pure and harsh lines and the brand new chequered, pois, camouflage and striped textiles of the capsule collection Nendo creates for Jil Sander.

Studio Nendo investigated the existence and positioning of objects by subconsciously following “outlines” and by distinguishing the “inside and outside” of these contours. This also means that objects with obscure outlines cannot always be identified as objects, and conversely if outlines are visible, that information which is not visible can be subconsciously supplemented.

The exhibition takes this fundamental principle into account, and the following ideas were implemented as a theme. The existence of items are blurred by manipulating outlines in various ways or the viewers can visually recognize the existence of an item in their minds by making invisible outlines visible.

In total 16 collections were amassed including the following: “border table” which presents a fragmented contour of rooms, “trace collection” capturing “traces” of movement, “un-printed material”, a piece that portrays various forms and expressions of paper through outline, “80 sheets of mountains” which features mountain range using outlines with cut and elongated sheet material, “objectextile” a collaboration project with Jil Sander, where contours of 3D objects are retrieved and turned into textile, and “jellyfish vase” a new piece that attempts to reestablish the relationship between vase and water with colour boundaries.
