Japanese design collective Nendo, with design director Oki Sato at the helm, is launching its new collaborative brand K% with a collection entitled black&black.

This is Sato’s first collection as the director of K%, a furniture brand from Singapore, but as the founder of Nendo, he has a keen eye and desire to make pieces accessible and affordable. The pieces in the line are all black and offer a stripped down approach to design where they avoid the “distraction of new materials, technique and color.”
