COS returns to Salone del Mobile this year with an exclusively commissioned installation by Japanese design studio nendo.

Located within the renowned art district of La Brera the installation will be indicative of nendo’s playful yet rational approach to design. With a portfolio that extends to fashion, footwear, furniture, lighting and retail spaces, the nendo philosophy ‘to re-imagine everyday objects and provide what they epigrammatically like to call a small ‘!’ moment’, will be evident in both the concept and realisation of the COS installation.

As a cinematic compliment to the COS × nendo collaboration, Wallpaper* magazine’s film shorts depict the essential, simple and subtle white shirt as a perpetual inspiration. As always, with simplicity and subtlety to the fore, COS regards the white shirt as a blank canvas open to variation, versatility and adjustment but also as an endless inspiration for other products; be that a shirt, a vase, a candle stand or jewellery. Always reflecting simplicity and functionality.

The COS × nendo installation and Concept store will be open until the 13th of April 2014.
