nomad is a magazine for design and society. For nomad, design is a process of shaping the future, and a catalyst for social developments and individual lifestyles.

nomad seeks to change the perspective of design – from its status as an extraordinary phenomenon to a concept more rooted in the everyday: a progression that engenders natural appreciation. Alongside a focus on the end-result of the design process and the designers themselves, other aspects are explored and the effects and future potential of design culture, in terms of individuals and society as a whole, are investigated within the framework of a broader understanding of design.

In this way, nomad aims to adopt new stances. The magazine offers views on a wide range of standpoints: personal and economic, cultural and global. By doing so, nomad covers a wide range of topics juxtaposing design, social and lifestyle issues with aspects of shaping the future, providing revelations and inspiration in the process.

In this issue:

The need for a meaningful form of economy, mindful of the common good and the environment, is omnipresent and our chosen issue’s theme. We want to show how purpose economy reinvents the world and give deep insights from a business, social and design/architectural perspective.

For issue no 11 nomad found selected protagonists to talk about this next generation of business – whose primary drivers are not power, influence or profit, but who seek to make a positive impact – as well as protagonists who have a strong opinion about how essential the related shift of mind is.

We talked to Carson Chan, MoMA New York, to understand how architecture is redefined. SHIFT a company founded by brothers Carsten and Samuel Waldeck, that strives to do ‘as much good as we can and as little harm as possible in the process’. Prof. Martin R. Stuchtey, co-founder of SYSTEMIQ, accelerating and shaping the transition to circular industrial systems. Maike Kauffmann and Christoph Bietz from Purpose Foundation, Berlin. Their organization has the declared mission of “rethinking ownership to transform the economy”, seeking to recreate business on a fairer and more sustainable footing by redefining the nature of corporate investment.

Architect Pia Maier Schriever, who is a member of the high-level round table of the EU Commission’s New European Bauhaus initiative gives insights about her personal efforts to forge connections between our cultural heritage and climate protection, and about a new aesthetic understanding and new typologies for the twenty-first century.

Jutta Werner, who was travelling in the Himalayas when she came across the perfect base material for a collection of sustainable rugs: remnants from sweet bag production. Klaus Peter Radtke’s story tells the global and social aspects of setting up a neem plantation in Mauritania.

And there are many more fascinating articles besides – on lamp manufacturer Midgard, sustainable swimwear label MYMARINI, pioneering thinker Andreas Murkudis, and Günes Seyfarth, founder of a social food initiative.
