Studio Makkink and Bey is a Line That Goes with You on the Go

If you have any inclination that society might collapse and you’d rather be safe than sorry, you’ll be pleased that Studio Makkink and Bey created furniture-ready for a nomadic lifestyle. These pieces of furniture are made with a nomadic lifestyle in mind and utilize natural materials and animal fiber.

The Studio Makkink and Bey collection includes a backpack that triple functions as a chair and a roll-out sofa bed, a basket that doubles as a table and a cane that transforms into a screen -- because in a nomadic future we’ll all have a projector, right? Either way, Studio Makkink and Bey showcase how someone could carry the comfort of a home on their own back while living a nomadic lifestyle.

The straps to carry the backpack-sofa-chair are the equivalent of a wool coat for those long, cold journeys we may have to embark on. It’s reassuring that even if a nomadic society is the future, we’ll still be able to live with the comfort of the familiarity thought only to exist in a permanent household.
