Softer Than Steel by Nendo

Beautiful furniture collection designed by Nendo for Desalto, an Italian company.

A section of the bench has flipped up and turned into the backrest. Poles wrap around each other to become a coat stand. We bent a tabletop’s edges to attach onto the frame like cloth draping over the frame’s edges, so that the tabletop can be picked up like a tray. By adding flipped, bent and wrapped details to metal sheets and rods, the ordinarily hard material gains new functionality and a light, flexible feel, as though the metal has become paper or cloth.
