Transparent Table by Nendo

June 4th, 2011 by retail design blog

Japanese design studio Nendo has designed Transparent Table. The collection has two types of transparent tables, a black table and a clear table. Both tables were on display at the Milan Design Week 2011. Here is some information by the designer, “We cast clear acrylic in a wooden form with a strong grain and assembled the resulting pieces to create a table made of ‘transparent wood’. We reproduced the butt ends faithfully and beveled the edges like floorboards, and matched the grains ends and dimensions of the wood used for the table legs to the ‘transparent wood’ to create a unified piece.

The two tables have specific and different optical effects: at first glance the black table is wood, but a closer look reveals its transparency, while the clear table is the transparent at first glance, and only later reveals its wooden form.” Photos: Masayuki Hayashi.
