exploring the potential of temporary furniture, spanish designer jorge penadés has created the ‘nomadic chair’, a flexible piece that can be adorned like a backpack. the project reduces traditional comfort levels, replacing them with an object that encourages maximum mobility for an on-the-go lifestyle.

 

‘luxury is not anymore a matter of comfort. nowadays, luxury is to be able to decide where you want to have a moment of peace, a chance to escape from hectic activity of contemporary lifestyles’. says jorge penadés.

 

the structure is formed without any screws, nails or glue so it is simple to break apart and reassemble. the system works through a series of connections that follow classical wooden joinery, able to be put together quickly by hand. the simplicity of its construction is a key to the ‘nomadic chair’s’ dynamic design.
