The Design Museum Holon in Israel mounts a Studio nendo, Oki Sato retrospective entitled The Space in Between, (8 June until 30 October 2016).

The Space in Between will be the first-ever large scale retrospective exhibition of the Tokyo-based design powerhouse. Designed by nendo founder, Oki Sato, and curated by Maria Cristina Didero, the showcase will explore the borders between design presented in museums and the future of the objects that surround us. “This presentation investigates the only space in which Sato could not intervene,” explains Didero. “The space in between but on which he actually powerfully does: what is in-between, what is un-design and the carefully calculated operative-area left to light and air. The theme became a narrative expedient to tell the story of his unique career, up to nowadays.”

A museum-first, the show will be divided into six thematic categories of ‘space’ with about 74 thought-provoking designs, featuring both old and new pieces from the beginning of Sato’s career to present day nendo commissions.

nendo – The Spaces in Between: 8 June–30 October 2016
