Sinking floor and furniture

Tokyo-based architecture and design company nendo has an impressive portfolio.


You wouldn’t tell by the look of the picture, but they designed for Typsy’s , a wine bar in Tokyo, a wooden floor that evokes the “floating” feeling of tipsiness. Once you pass the terrace, the floor slightly sinks under your weight.


In 2003, they created for the Tokyo Designers Week the Sinking about furniture series. It may lose its original use, but we can always find a different way. Maybe we can give you a little hint about the relation between function and form. And, yes, they even got the DESIGN PREMIO award for it.
