Nomad Chair

View all 13 Photos

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.

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
