These beautiful little globes are the latest creation of the Japanese boutique firm Nendo. Blown-fabric, created for Tokyo Fiber ’09 Senseware, is made from ‘Smash’ fabric. This rip proof polyester thermoplastic lights beautifully and stretches to hold air much like a soft billowy balloon. A throwback to traditional Japanese chochin paper lanterns, Blown-fabric lanterns are constructed much like blown glass giving each object a hand crafted uniqueness.
Since 2002 Nendo has produced innovative Japanese design in a range of categories. With each passing year their annual body of work grows while their number of staff remains extremely slim. In 2009 they tout a robust staff of 6. An exhibition of new Nendo work will be on display at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design until January 10, 2010.
