CONIC-VINE – Nendo x Alcantara Kaleidoscope
Conic-Vine is an installation made by Nendo, the award-winning Japanese design studio headed by architect Oki Sato, and was a key feature of the Alcantara Kaleidoscope Fuorisalone event during Milan Design Week last month.
Nendo imagined a wall of soft Alcantara climbing plants. Very thin layers of material form rows of romantic cones. The projects highlights the material’s innate aesthetic and sensory qualities while also spotlighting its functional properties.
“The installation owes its strength and beauty exclusively to Alcantara, the only material used. Thermo-welded cones are the only structural element; they stay attached to each other thanks to the grip that characterises this material” explains Oki Sato.
Alcantara turns it into a furnishing accessory available in new compositions and colours. A new, soft material weave to add a refined touch to sophisticated contemporary interiors. The ideal solution for those who wish to divide a large space or simply characterise a corner of their home with original elegance.
