65 Nifty Nendo Designs

Contemporary Designs From Modular Furniture to Modernized Lighting

— April 14, 2013 — Art & Design
The design company Nendo specializes in contemporary designs which cover a variety of household objects and products. One or two Nendo pieces can completely transform your room or even your person and bring a positive reaction.

Nendo has been creating all kinds of projects which include modular seating, modernized dishware, stylish birdhouses and minimalist tables. It has even been involved with computer peripherals and earphones. There is not much that Nendo can't pull off by giving its own stylish twist.

Although Nendo's contemporary designs focus on furniture, one of my favorite pieces by the design company is a watch. It is constantly changing its style as time goes by, kind of like a life form. It reminds you how time affects us all, while bringing something new and exciting into everyday life.
