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:

Living Spaces

We travelled from Munich to Berlin, crossed the Italian Alps and jumped from the UK to the US – interviewing visionaries, pioneers and designers around the globe by asking: how do they define and shape living spaces? How does architecture interact with nature, with leisure design, with working environments? Which is the most sustainable way in all of this? And what needs will people have?

Our tour started in Munich’s city centre, interviewing Axel Meise on how he went about shaping “a new culture of light”. Heading west of the city to Neuhausen, Professor Markus Allmann spoke to Oliver Herwig about the quality of a dialectical approach. Up near the River Rhine, Frank Wagner talked to Dr Marc Brunner and Steffen Kehrle about the nate collection. Sigurd Larsen and Georg von Hausen outlined their inspiring philosophy of sustainable products, as designers of the first piece of furniture that comes to mind when talking about living spaces: sofas. Sophie Dries delves into the challenges of designing those private spaces.

Former startup founder Frederik Fischer aims to reinterpret rural living with a new community mindset and has developed the KoDorf (co-village) concept. We spoke to Markus Bader, architect, professor at Berlin University of the Arts and co-founder of raumlabor in Berlin, and read about his excitement of the unexpected – be it in the form of people, events or experiences. From Berlin to the Italian Alps, we met up with Tobias Luthe at MonViso Institute – a real-world lab for trialling sustainable living spaces.

The changes wrought in our living environment by the advance of digital technologies are a long-standing preoccupation of London-based architect and UX designer Keiichi Matsuda, who examines what they means for our daily routines and how fiction can enhance our understanding of our possible futures. Karianne Fogelberg held a transatlantic Zoom interview with Rania Ghosn and El Hadi, and Kimberly Bradley portrayed Lisbon-dwelling curator and architect Mariana Pestana.
