Nendo’s In the Shade

Oki Sato of Nendo walks us through In the Shade, a project done in collaboration with Caesarstone.

29 June, 2016


in the shade by Nendo is presented as part of nendo: the space in between, an exhibition held at Design Museum Holon in Israel.

Done in collaboration with Caesarstone, the installation sits in the external courtyard and is inspired by the strong effects of light and shadow in Israel. It is constructed out of free-standing sheets of glass coloured by Glas Italia, and supported on Caesarstone pedestals. Resembling the look of natural stone, the pedestals are created using a variety of Caesarstone designs in different tonalities, whilst the glass sheets embody the overall colour palette of the exhibition.

Appearing to divide light and shadow, the quartz along with the positioning of the coloured glass evoke the feeling of being ‘outdoors’ and in the sunlight when one looks at it from either side, with the other side appearing to be ‘indoors’ and in the shadow.
