Japanese design studio Nendo mesmerised audiences at this year’s Interior Design Show in Toronto. Nendo founder and chief designer, Oki Sato, came as the IDS 2013 International Guest of Honour.

His  exclusive creation, Stone Garden, was  made with Caesarstone®‘s quartz surface materials, and gave the effect of being a vista of floating stones hanging in the air.

The installation toyed with the boundary between ‘furniture’ and ‘non-furniture’.

“Tables that aren’t quite tables form a cluster, creating a new kind of ground surface like a garden floating in the universe, far beyond the scale of individual tables,” said Oki.

Oki was named one of the brightest talents in a new generation of Japanese minimalist designers . In 2006, Newsweek named him one of the world’s “100 Most Respected Japanese People”.

Of his work with Caesarstone®, he said, “The unique variety and quality of natural colours and textures of the Caesarstone® surfaces are perfect to be arranged in a composition, like the stylized landscape of a Japanese rock garden.”
