Nendo Combines a Japanese and Danish Approach to Design

Nendo has used a slightly different approach to design for the latest collection for BoConcept titled Fusion. The brand decided to bring together two unlikely styles, one being Japanese craftsmanship and the other Danish manufacturing.

The result is a furniture collection that has the best of both worlds. When you think about it, this approach should happen more often, as designers are then using the best from across the globe instead of just turning to immediate resources. The Japanese approach to design can be seen through the details on the furnishings, such as the origami sections or even the animals on certain items. For the Danish influence, it's clear that this furniture collection is extremely well made, resulting in pieces that should stand the test of time.
