Founded in 2002 - Nendo is a Japanese design studio headed by Oki Sato. Their diverse range of designs include furniture, lighting, industrial and interiors. Sato was born in Toronto, Canada and later moved to Tokyo, where he took a M.A. in Architecture at Waseda University. "Nendo" means 'modelling clay' in Japanese - a term perfectly suited to the studio’s sculptural approach to design no matter the material. For their work, Nendo has been awarded with Dezeen, Wallpaper and Red Rot Design Awards among many more throughout the studio's lifetime.
