Minimalist design could easily get lost in an equally minimal space. That’s why Oki Sato from the Japanese design firm Nendo doesn’t just drop his work in the middle of a plain white room and call it a day. At the Nendo Solo show in Taiwan, the “think black lines” and “dancing squares” collections were presented in a unique space designed specifically to compliment the work. The walls and floors featured black and white line drawings that make visitors feel like they’re walking through an illustration. For an even more dramatic effect, some of the walls were curved to create a fish-eye lens look.
