With his Surface Lamp for the Objets Nomades collection, Oki Sato, the inspired designer behind the Nendo Studio: encased light in leather. A rechargeable lamp is shaped by a sheet of Nomade leather, perforated to reveal a subtle gradient interpretation of the emblematic Louis Vuitton Damier motif when the light is on. Between uses, it rolls up and fits into a handy carrying harness — “nomadism” at its best.

Color: caramel.



Born in Toronto in 1977, Oki Sato graduated from Waseda University, Tokyo, in 2002 and immediately founded Nendo, his design studio. It is now one of the most influential small companies in Japan, thanks to work such as the extraordinary Cabbage Chair: a cylinder of reinforced paper that is peeled back layer by layer to produce an instant seat. Sato’s work can now be seen in museums around the world, from Museum of Modern Art, New York, to the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

For Sato, design is about using technology to promote simplicity, while creating what he calls ‘!’ moments” for people in their everyday lives: "We believe that these small ‘!’ moments are what make our days so interesting, so rich."
