Nomad Chair

Inspired by the historic Roorkhe chair used by the British military in India at the turn of the 20th century, furniture maker and designer Sebastian Jorgensen of We Do Wood has created a versatile piece that values both age and form. The Nomad Chair, constructed from turned bamboo, leather, canvas, and brass, challenges the overproduction of the modern furniture industry through a simple and adaptable design. Its classic “field chair” silhouette can be rolled up and easily transported in a matter of seconds, making it ideal for the nomadic lifestyle; not only do the materials allow the chair to age beautifully, but it can literally be carried with you through all facets of life. A timeless tribute to good design, the Nomad chair provides an elegant and sustainable solution to the problems of our modern “throwaway” industry. Check out the kickstarter that’s making it happen.
