If you demand that your furniture is both reassuringly substantial and also portable, then you probably have a tough time navigating life. But here's something to help: a real chair that can be worn as a backpack.

The Nomadic Chair by Jorge Penades is constructed from wood, but doesn't require any screws, nails or glue—it simply uses some smart plastic connectors to fit together. Penades explains the design:

‘Luxury is not anymore a matter of comfort. nowadays, luxury is to be able to decide where you want to have a moment of peace, a chance to escape from hectic activity of contemporary lifestyles.’


Nice. So, when you've finished sitting, dismantle, pack and sling it on your back—ready to find the next spot to take a break. Because why the hell not? [Jorge Penades via Design Boom]
