In Brief

Simplicity, appreciation for the impermanent and reconnection with nature are the inspiration behind the pieces included in the kit

Moving frequently has become the preferred lifestyle for a lot of people, but this can lead to never feeling a sense of belonging to one locale in particular. To make it easy to create a familiar space wherever one may be, product design brand Gerardo Osio created Nomadic Life, a series of objects that can be easily carried from one place to another.

The Nomadic Life kit comes in a wooden carrier influenced by a box used by Buddhist monks, and includes a mat made of igusa straws, a copper tableware set, a cushion, a candle and incense holder, and a flower vase. All of the pieces are handmade with natural materials like wood, straw, copper and cotton, in collaboration with craftsmen in Kyoto, Fukui and Okayama. With these pieces, the studio aims to show how traditional Japanese crafts can offer a solution to the problems of shrinking living spaces.
