Artist shows his love of manga comics in the sculptural chairs. via fastco.design
For the upcoming Milan design fair, Nendo created 50 chairs for Friedman Benda, each of which adapts one design element from manga, or Japanese comics, into an otherwise stock design.
So one of Nendo’s chairs has stars shooting out of it, which in manga usually means a character is stunned. Another is surrounded by a swirling vortex, showing it’s dizzy. Another has straight lines shooting up from it, making it look like it’s falling, while its sister chairs have similar lines coming from the left and right, making it seem as if they are speeding. There’s a wobbly kneed chair, a jittery chair, and even a chair with a speech bubble coming out.
