Nomad Chair is a Nordic interpretation of the traditional Moroccan wicker chair.
The Name is a contraction between “Nordic” and “Moroccan”, to the characteristic “Nomad”.
Nomad is a reinterpretation of the classic complex wicker chair, where the number of joints is simplified to its function only. Through a close cooperation with suppliers, many experiments have been done in order to develop the Nomads large seat and back frames, as well as the back leg which runs all the way from floor to top of the back in one piece.
Seat and back are made of two large molded bamboo frames, with inlaid French bamboo mesh. The semi- transparent bamboo mesh gives the large surface a light expression and highlights the beautiful construction.
With the chair follows a neck pillow with 3 heights, as well as a seat cushion for added comfort. Both pillows are produced in cognac leather, which highlights the warm bamboo.
