After more than ten frustrating years in various badly designed wheelchairs, Mark Owen took it upon himself to create a new wheelchair design that was beautiful, lightweight, bespoke and modern.
Named Nomad, Owen’s innovative, minimalist design is constructed from fewer parts, which allows for a lighter chair with greater reliability and mobility. In addition, Nomad operates with a moral and environmentally friendly approach to the sourcing of its materials. Where possible, sustainable materials are used, the carbon footprint is reduced, and fair prices are paid to suppliers.
Nomad has just won the First Time Design Project award from Design Management Europe.
