Ghost Stories

A few photos from Nendo‘s solo exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, “Ghost Stories, New Designs from Nendo.” The show runs until January 10.

An exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, featuring four new designs. Long rectangular slashes of windows run around the walls and ceiling of the gallery space we were given. We decided not to build any walls that would keep visitors from enjoying the windows and the changing light that filters into the gallery.

The products, along with samples that convey a sense of the production process sit on pre-existing white stands, surrounded by small, 5mm-diameter white stickers affixed to the floor around them. The stickers provide a gradation effect, as though the stands are melting into the larger space. The overall effect of the installation design is to maintain the space’s specificity, while intensifying the presence of each new work.
