Compact furniture: Tokyo Tribal by Nendo for Industry+

Japanese studio Nendo has designed the “Tokyo Tribal” collection for Singaporean design brand, Industry+. Tokyo Tribal is a collection of compact furniture, consisting of 22 items including stools, chairs, tables and shelves. The frames are made from solid oak, and the top board finishes are volcanic sand plaster. Bamboo rattan that is hand-woven by local artisans in the Philippines is used to create back-supports, which take advantage of the bamboo’s elastic properties, as well as basket-shaped storage compartments that sit within the legs of a stool or intersect table legs.

Industry+ was set up by P.C. Ee, creative director and designer of Exit Studio and Yoichi Nakamuta, founder of design production company E&Y.
