Issue No 14 — Care



This issue explores the concept of care from a relationship perspective, discussing the need for redefining relationship contexts or even reinventing some entirely. It also raises questions about our relationship with nature, examining whether we are superior or subordinate to it and how we can redefine our relationship with it. The issue also covers discussions on waste, architecture and design, and considers how they can be used to change our relationship with nature and the world.


nomad features people who explore the relationship between humans and nature in their work, including artist Zheng Bo, designer duo Formafantasma, Studio Ossidiana, General and Artistic Director at Nieuwe Insituut Aric Chen, furniture manufacturers ecoBirdy, Studio Plastique, designer and architect Michele de Lucchi, artist Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg and many more.

nomad is a magazine for design and society. It views design as a process of shaping the future and as a catalyst for social developments and individual lifestyles. Alongside a focus on the end result of the design process and the designers themselves, other aspects are explored through which the effects and future potential of design culture for individuals and society as a whole are investigated within the framework of a broader understanding of design.
