In today’s day and age, simplicity is a beautiful thing, often overlooked. It is clean, and not complicated, natural, and straightforward. When you think about it, one of the first things that may come to mind is Swedish style. As most Europeans, they are renowned for their discreet luxury, which in part stems from simplicity. They get straight to the point. Whether it be a staple striped shirt from Hennes & Mauritz (H&M), a bold flora top from Swedish Hasbeens, or a classic pair of bottoms from Acne Jeans, you have your basics covered. It was no different with BoConcept’s debut of the Nendo home collection by Japan’s Oki Sato this week, which featured a variety of angular pieces, with solid colors on the black and white scale, that were anything but convoluted.

Take a walk through a room of Nendo accessories, and you get an intelligible edge on creativity and art. Sato fuses origami with various ideas, to comprise a form that can be enjoyed by men and women alike. For instance, the fusion chair in light grey fabrics and oak, maintains residual elements of the classic easy chair, which most men are known to indulge in, with ample space for comfortability and arm length, for extension. Then you have the fusion wall system with intentionality in its randomness, encompassing an array of mounted pieces to form distinct patterns. Of course, we cannot leave out the fusion sofa, which is an interesting pick for a modern bachelor pad, with its detailed stitching and straight wooden legs to embody a basic form of origami.

Nendo’s collection for BoConcept was nothing short of a delight and definitely for those with the uncanny ability to see beauty in modern simplicity. Who can forget how Yves Saint Laurent alluded to simplicity’s allure when he admitted that “I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.”
