K% is an exciting new venture, born from the collaboration between famed Japanese design studio Nendo and K Projects from Singapore, with Oki Sato, Nendo’s prolific co-founder, as a design director. The début collection, K% is currently showing at Salone del Mobile 2012, is called black&black. Purposely reduced to one colour, the line explores the relationship between structure and function. There is no distraction of new techniques or unusual materials. All pieces are made out of wood or metal.

The black&black collection is comprised of 15 objects, all following Nendo’s minimalist aesthetic. Sato elaborates:

It is exciting to be able to expand the original idea of Nendo into other parts of the world, starting with K%. We hope to bring a little bit of inspiration to everyone’s home through our products.

Collaborators for black&black are Singapore design firms Stidio JuJu and Exit Design. They each contributed an item to the collection.
