The hyper-connected world has brought about massive social changes that bring us full circle to a very old way of life: nomadism. Everyone is more mobile and on-the-move than ever before.
First, because cellular networks are getting faster. And there’s an increasing number of gadgets to connect to these networks (Internet of Things).
The social effects from all this connection is already apparent too. Many eBusiness owners, entrepreneurs, and bloggers are foregoing traditional offices.
To suit our nomadic lifestyles, we’re going to need some home essentials to go with us. But wait, hold on before you toss out all your worldly possessions.
Thanks to modern technology and clever design, we don’t need to give up our creature comforts. Here are a few examples of furniture to-go, mobile furnishings, and minimalist things.
The appropriately Urban Nomad Sofa by Hungarian furniture brand Hannabi is a modular set of cushioned rectangles and triangular supports. Rearrange them however you like to get comfy.
Studio Makkink & Bey designed a Wearable Hotel Room. It includes a cloth mat, sleeping bag roll, a room divider that rolls up like an umbrella, wooden basket (doubles as a stool). Everything has dual functions and can be all rolled up and worn like a backpack.
Why stop at just lugging around our furniture? Why not just channel your inner hermit crab and bring your house with you?
San Francisco’s Kyu Che created a sustainable Lifepod – a highly portable, fully functional, off-the-grid dwelling for modern nomadic living. Inspired by roaming mammals, Lifepod has adjustable footing that conforms to its environment.
This is in sharp contrast to plowing through everything to build housing. All of its modular pieces fit into a 40 ft shipping container and be sent anywhere in the world.
Meanwhile, at the Florida International University in Miami, students Patrick Soares and Indra Alam design an architectural structure that can withstand a dark, post-apocalyptic future. Their architectural survival strategy uses HUBS that can detach from the main structure, becoming nomadic themselves.
However it manifests, the general direction of the future is clear. People will be more mobile and opt less to stay in one town their whole lives. The internet has brought the globe closer together, making it easier than ever to work local and think global.
