Studio Carton North

This gorgeous studio used to be an old garage. As you can see, the floors and walls have remained intact. Also the worksheets, sinks and lighting have been untouched, what gives this studio a unique feeling. We are amazed by the vintage look, which combines perfectly with nature!



COS X NENDO

14.4.14


COS x nendo, a collaboration between this Japanese design studio and COS. For the 3rd year COS took part in the Salone del Mobile with a special commissioned installation and tempory concept store featuring a selection of these COS pieces and items by nendo.

Founded in Tokyo by architect and designer Oki Sato, nendo has been synonymous with modern, functional design. The name 'nendo' is Japanese for modelling clay, indicative of the studio's playful, yet rational approach. 

The pieces are available in the COS webshop...great minimalism and timeless pieces. A collaboration that truly works.

"I don't have any borders between design and architecture. They both exist to make our lives comfortable and beautiful." -Oki Sato-
