Nomadic Chair by Jorge Penadés

by 7 noviembre 2013

Responding to society’s current and future needs born from modern culture, this project explores the potential of temporary furniture. Reducing comfort to the minimum in order to enlarge mobility to the maximum, Penadés encourage us to reconsider our ideas of contemporary furniture and give them new meanings in a more ephemeral context.

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.

´Nomadic Chair´is part of ´Nomadic Seating Series´ a further development of Jorge Penadés´s graduation project ´Nomadic Studio´. He is currently investigating new possibilities of temporary furniture in order to create a collection of pieces within the same principle, understanding furniture as itinerant objects rather than static.
