nendo presents a new shelf “nest shelf” during London Design Festival at Somerset House
nendo participates at the “Ten Designers in the West Wing” exhibiton to be held in the landmark building Somerset House during the London Design Festival, September 21st to 27th. There nendo introduces its latest development “nest shelf”, A shelf that from within a second shelf of the same size seemingly grows outward.
Designed by Sayaka Ito, vertical sections are made from 3.7 mm thick carbon fiber, while the 3.7 mm thick horizontal sections consist of aramid fibre-made honeycomb material sandwiched between carbon fiber.
Both sections are coated with a larch veneer, resulting in a 4.8 mm thick shelving hidden within the 9.6 mm thick outer shelving.
The 650 mm width of the shelf’s fully-collapsed state doubles to 1300mm when the shelf is fully extended outward, allowing the user the flexibility to choose a width appropriate for the space available.
Extending the shelf halfway produces a grid shelf-style layout with rows of square shelves.
