ABOUT NOMAD CHAIR
We Do Wood designer Sebastian Jørgensen has rediscovered a Scandinavian furniture classic. The Nomad Chair is inspired by the legendary Roorkhee Chair, which was originally made for British military officers stationed in India and later reworked by Scandinavian designers Kaare Klint and Arne Norell. The Nomad Chair is a true field chair and can be assembled or dissembled in a matter of seconds, making it highly portable and perfect for the modern nomadic lifestyle. The furniture parts are made from turned bamboo, which gives a lightweight, exceptionally strong and very comfortable chair.
The Nomad Chair furniture parts are made from certified moso bamboo, one of the most sustainable natural resources the world has. We Do Wood only work with certified plantations. This is our guarantee that our bamboo is grown without any chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Furthermore the bamboo processing and furniture manufacturing is done without the use of harmful chemicals and all adhesives used during processing and production has the lowest formaldehyde emissions in the industry.
THE DESIGNER BEHIND THE CONCEPT…
“Sustainability is quintessential to our choice of materials and techniques. we simply place an honour in creating the most environmentally friendly furniture possible.”
Sebastian Jørgensen is the designer behind We Do Wood. As a trained furniture- and cabinetmaker, Sebastian is an experienced craftsman. However, Sebastian’s understanding of design originally comes from the world of art, which creates a different approach than most. Sebastian’s design process is a bit like painting: he usually make a sketch and goes directly to the workshop to make 1:1 mock ups and prototypes. Eventually Sebastian usea his background as a cabinet maker to prepare the piece for industrial production.
