This limited edition table by Japanese designer Nendo is stable only when objects are placed on it. The table top can be cantilevered by adding sufficient objects to weigh it down.
The dependence of the furniture on its objects allows for various methods of assembly.
Part of Nendo’s Object Dependencies collection for Specimen Editions. This collection presents pieces of ‘weak furniture’ that cannot stand independently until they are made structurally sound through the addition of an object. Object dependencies is an exploration into new forms created by resetting the once-unquestioned relationship between furniture and objects.
