Nendo and Nichetto co-created Isole virtually via a long distance exchange of ideas inspired by traditional Japanese poetry called Tanka, where one person starts the poem and the other person completes it. Isole is Italian for islands, echoed in a unique modular sofa concept replete with individual components. Isole is a versatile sofa with discrete side tables expressed in an aesthetic that’s soft, endearing and inviting.

Nendo and Luca Nichetto teamed up as Nichetto=Nendo for Milan Design Week 2013. 

A seven-piece furniture collection created through a collaboration with Italian designer Luca Nichetto. In a process and format similar to the Japanese poetry genre known as tanka (‘short poem’), in which the top three lines generate a further two-line response, we took turns coming up with a basic concept, which we then passed over to the other person to use as inspiration, and to further expand and develop. The project was an experiment in dynamic making, in which nothing was planned in advance. Because we worked collaboratively, the design process felt like a jam session, with each participant taking turns improvising new melodies on top of a shared rhythm until a new song emerged.
