MORE INFORMATION:


During the tension of the Vietnam War and a looming gas crisis, a concept was conceived in California known as Nomadic furniture. Environmentally safe, disposable, and created without relying on manufacturing abilities, these pieces were designed using by-products of industry which could be easily transported or broken down, but most importantly developed from pre-existing materials. In addition, the Hull's conceptualized their designs as being available for the market in varying stages of development: un-upholstered, unpainted, or even simply as parts.
