Voluminous Sculptural Design from Japan

Sculptural Design is a theme we are drawn to along with the idea of creating a world (interior) that evokes the aspirations and inspirations of the owner.
Oki Sato Nendo’s ‘Deep Sea’ table for Glas Italia presented at Salone di Mobile in Milan this week is a serene experience of expanding volume evoking warm, calm tropical waters (to our minds!), through a process of fusing multiple layers of blue film onto each surface to create varying degrees of saturation. The restricted overall form simultaneously imposes order while seemingly levitating. 
It brought to mind another object we’ve been coveting by another Japanese artist: Go Segawa. His ‘Cobalt’ presented last month at Design Days Dubai, is a meditative experience of floating volume evoking a relationship between sculpture and painting and challenging the viewers perceptions of form. On a practical level it is clear PVC ‘painted’ with ink and varnish but the experience is something quite ethereal and exciting!
