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:

Do we need a revolution? This question is asked by Thomas Stocker in his essay ‚Melting Ice‘ that is accompanied by a photo essay of expedition photographer Fridolin Walcher, showing spectacular photographs of Glaciers in Greenland and Switzerland. Geologist Andreas Sanders provides the broader picture and explains the history of climate change in the article ‚Climate Change in the Anthropocene‘.

In this context philosopher Mara Recklies reflects on the role of design in the current global situation – ‚Is good design still good for us? And was it ever?’. We embarked on dialogues with ground-breaking visionaries of a new form of design. We interviewed Futurefarmers in San Francisco, Wang & Söderström in Copenhagen, Sabine Marcelis in Rotterdam, Studio Formafantasma in Amsterdam, Natsai Audrey Chieza in London and Olivier Saillard in Paris. We also talked to Dom Bridges, founder of Haeckels, an English skincare brand based on natural ingredients from the Margate coast, to Joachim H. Blickhäuser in Munich on the transparency of the new BMW logo and the remarkable decision by the BMW Group to focus its corporate direction on sustainability and resource conservation in the future, to Andreas Murkudis in Berlin about sustainable quality and consumer behaviour and to the world-renowned visionary thinker and design curator Paola Antonelli from MoMA New York.
