The transition of the Bedouins from nomadic lifestyle to a forced sedentisim, created hybridization between traditional aspects of the Bedouin culture to western habits. Designer, Erez Nevi Pana, presents “Neomadic” as the integration between East and West, a combination of a carpet and a chair.
The concept reacts to the position of the Bedouins nowadays – caught in between the mix of traditional tribal culture and a western practices. the weaving process contains the skills and tools that were used by the Bedouin women to weave their tents, but this time around with synthetic materials;
By collecting leftover yarns of a textile factory that produces seats to IKEA, the designer weaved a new seat that holds elements from contrast worlds – East and West, handicraft and manufacturing, nomadic life and sedentary settlers.
