In an era where ´temporary´ is the adjective that is shaping modern living & working spaces, designer Jorge Penadés asks what new values are needed to question the actual model of the furniture industry in order to articulate new logics and visions that face the current and future needs of contemporary society.
The Nomadic Shelves is the latest addition to the Nomadic Collection, a series of furniture pieces which are based on a detachable structure without any kind of screws, nails or glue. This simple yet returnable system works through connections inspired by traditional wooden joinery that can be easily assembled and disassembled by hand.
A the core of the system lies the simplicity of it construction. Instead of glue, a simple metal connector is used to hold the wooden pieces together, providing enough strength and stability to create chairs, shelves or benches. The system has a big potential for furniture, whole interiors and even for small architectures.
