The Mimicry Chairs by Nendo are featured in juxtaposition to the their ornate setting at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The chairs are scattered throughout the museum including galleries, staircases and corridors as a part of an installation by the Japanese artist. Each chair seems to be almost responsive of its environmental setting, as if it was trying to adjust. The chairs are joined together in unconventional ways, and boast and irresistible metal aesthetic. The intention behind these ethereal designs points to a inclination to inclusiveness.

Nendo Studio states that the intent was for the museum's patrons to "discover a new side to the museum's appeal by sitting on different chairs to observe, absorb and appreciate." With an encouraging intent and bold minimalist aesthetic, the Mimcry Chairs by Nendo make for a stunning installation.
