“Reducing comfort to the minimum in order to enlarge mobility to the maximum”, Jorge Penadés has created the ‘Nomadic Chair’, a collapsible, portable chair made of wood – a flatpack chair that can be carried like a backpack.

 

 

 

“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 Penadés.

“Responding to society’s current and future needs born from modern culture, this project explores the potential of temporary furniture.”

“This project is based on a structure without any kind of screws, nails or glue. The system works through connections inspired by traditional wooden joinery that can be assembled and disassembled by hand, with small gestures in (approx) 2 minutes. This fact allows the user to move easily with the seat from one place to another, emphasizing dynamism as the object’s inherent purpose.”

Part of Penadés’ Nomadic Seating Series, Nomadic Chair is a further development of his Escola Superior de Disseny i d’Arts Plàstiques (ESDAP) graduation project ‘Nomadic Studio’, presented in Barcelona in June 2013.
