Temporary Spaces and a Life on the Move.
"To take advantage of serendipity travel light" ~Interview with Jan Chipchase
Mobility is the new ultimate form of freedom. Freedom from routine, traditional values and geographic restraints. Today's creative class thrives off a lifestyle that enables it to work six months in a shared office in Berlin, spend the summer in a caravan in Chile, and show up in time for the next project at a temporary desk in New York.
This growing trend has generated visionary ways of designing products and spaces that facilitate a nomadic yet high-tech life. From a modular dwelling system on wheels to an inflatable classroom in a repurposed dumpster, this book compiles a wide range of flexible spaces and innovative products that define today's nomads. Through innovative technology, and by (literally) thinking outside the box, the designers behind thee concepts give people the freedom to call the entire world their home.
What might currently be perceived as an exception is rapidly becoming the rule. The New Nomads explores a phenomenon that has as imminent impact on the work of architects, city planners, product designers and employers worldwide.
