Nendo Reimagines the Roadside Food Stand

Nendo is a Japanese design firm known for their elegant, minimal designs that take ordinary objects, and make them uniquely special. Some of their earlier work includes redesigning the cuckoo clock, a paper torch, and an innovative charger.

One of their latest projects is called Petit Market, and aims to help farmers sell directly to consumers. ┬áThe clever and simple wooden stand comes with built in shelves and lighting, and a menu chalkboard that doubles as a door, when the stand needs to close up shop. Made in three different sizes, it’s an elegant solution to a roadside stand, looking distinctive while nicely offering up fresh, farm food to passersby.

Another fun and useful design from Nendo. Via Design Milk:
