tuta coat-hanger

Design Nendo, 2008
Laser-cut metal plate
Made in Italy by Cappellini

Ivy, "tuta" in Japanese, grows by clinging onto and encircling the exterior surface of trees and buildings. The tuta coat rack loses the materiality of the base structure, leaving only an outline that seems to float in space. The Tuta coat-hanger features transparent plastic feet with the structure in laser-cut metal plate available polish lacquered in white or black.

Under the direction of architect Oki Sato, the group that gathers under the name Nendo has produced, since 2002, a cultural and refined alternative to self-celebrated design. "Nendo" in Japanese means "clay" and their job, in the field of interior architecture, of furniture and graphics is pliable and flexible as clay. In a short few years, Nendo has received important international credits.

Born into a family of furniture manufacturers, Giulio Cappellini began working for the family company in 1979, after earning his degree in architecture and studying business management. By the early 1980’s, Guilio’s leadership brought the Cappellini company into the world market from its three decade run as a handicraft furniture business. Hoping to expand the styles and materials used, Guilio scouted designers, bringing Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Marcel Wanders, Marc Newson, and Tom Dixon into the fold. Now, the firm boasts a varied, comprehensive collection rather than a singular style. Still, there are common threads: refined simplicity, dynamism, liveliness, humor.
