Nendo - Cord Chair

Spotted the Cord Chair over at Designboom - designed by Nendo for Maruni, the Cord Chair's wooden skin belies the metal structure beneath. It's an interesting exercise in deception - manufactured parading as natural, strength portrayed as delicateness, heaviness hidden by the appearance of lightness. Each leg is little over .5" in diameter - tiny!
