The space in between
June 07 -   October 29, 2016
Exhibition

Opens: June 7, 2016
Closes: October 29, 2016

The leading Japanese design studio Nendo's first-ever large-scale retrospective exhibition titled "The Space in Between", which will feature both old and new pieces extending from the beginning of his career until today.

nendo is a design office founded by Oki Sato (born in Canada, 1977, M.A in Architecture, Waseda University, Tokyo). Active in a wide range of fields, including interior design, product design, and graphic design. Winner of many awards, including a Design Report Award (Special Mention) at the Milan International Furniture Fair (Italy), Best Product in the I.D. Annual Design Review (U.S.), the Red Dot Design Award (Germany), and the Good Design Award (Japan). Newsweek selected Sato for "The Top 100 Respected Japanese", and Nendo for "The Top 100 Small Global Companies".

The exhibition will stretch from the interior to the exterior of the Design Museum Holon's grounds, to providean overall thought-provoking and immersive experience. A museum-first, the show will deal with the challenges and the related solutions that nendo - a studio led by one of the most prominent talents of this generation, Oki Sato -has encountered while interacting with the different typologies of objects and their unexplored areas. "This presentation investigates the only space in which Sato could not intervene, the space in between but on which he actually powerfully does: what is in-between, what is un-designand the carefully calculated operative-area left to light and air. 
The theme became a narrative expedient to tell the story of his unique career, up to nowadays", comments Maria Cristina Didero.

Nendo's designs begin by exploring and layering existing preconceptions, and then locating the gaps or "spaces" in between these layers to tie together new ideas.The idea behind this method is to gradually broaden the mind of the viewer. No less than 74 works divided into 6 categories of "spaces" were exhibited, with the aim of providing visitors with a first-hand experience of this process.

The six categories

01. between processes
02. between textures
03. between boundaries
04. between the object
05. between relationships
06. between senses
