MIO, Nomad screen, cardboard design, recycled cardboard screen, cardboard screen, green screen, ICFF 2007

Proving once again that cardboard is truly a green super-material, the Nomad Screen system by MIO takes recycled double-wall cardboard modules and transforms them into an endlessly-customizable architectural system. Designed by Jaime Salm and Roger Allen of sustainability focused design company MIO, Nomad was one of our favorite items at this year’s ICFF, and can be assembled into free-standing, sculptural screens, temporary partitions, rooms or even displays, without hardware, tools or damage to existing structures. A wonderfully simplistic solution to recycling materials.

The inspiration behind Nomad was simple- to acknowledge and cater to nomadic lifestyles and the desire for flexible space. Designed to grow and adapt to any environment and a range of applications, Nomad Architectural System translates the tools of architecture into simple modules that anyone can use.

+ $56 for a 24-piece set

    Lovely. Great idea. less is more and the beauty in the simplicity is outstanding. I’m really enjoying your site.

    The Eames House of Cards is still in production, and copyright, but the knock-off implication here is irrelevant. Eames didn’t invent the slot-together construction; and there’s a whole host of significant differences in design, use, appearance, and production that make this distinct.

    It would be sweet if they had more colors, though…
