No screws, nails or glue but just a simple system that works through connections inspired by traditional wooden joinery that can be assembled and disassembled by hand in less then five minutes. If nomadism is the new luxury for nowadays globe trotters, the temporary wooden seating by Barcelona based  Jorge Penadés is the ideal solution fot those who want to move easily from one place to another.

“Responding to society´s current and future needs born from modern culture, this project explores the potential of temporary furniture.” Explains the designer. “Reducing comfort to the minimum in order to enlarge mobility to the maximum, I encouraged to reconsider our ideas of contemporary furniture and give them new meanings in a more ephemeral context”.
