About this project
nomad is furniture designed with this "modern nomad" in mind. furniture designed to be simple, minimal, easy to assemble, disassemble, and move. nomad is modular and uses a tool-less joint system, so you never have screws or tools to keep track of. nomad is made in the USA from local eco-friendly materials. we love what we do. hope you enjoy it too!

why do we need kickstarter?
we need box printing and cutting dies. these dies are used to create the prints on the boxes and cut the boxes out of sheets for cardboard. these dies allow us to produce in mass quantities, which leads to a second reason for kickstarter. we need to be able to meet the factories minimum order requirements. your orders help us meet the minimum threshold required to get into production.
who are we?
nomad. traditionally nomads are characterized by moving from place to place following herds, water, or pastures. as a college student I found myself moving from place to place, not in search of sustenance but in search of opportunity. school, dating, experience, career. i am a modern nomad.
nomad is the brain child of quark enterprises. we are a product design company. quark designs and manufactures furniture products. we currently have a line of kids furniture called sprout. check it out at sprout-kids.com. we currently manufacture and ship out of a facility in North Salt Lake, Utah.
our products are designed for simplicity. designed to be easy to use and simple to manufacture. furniture is manufactured on a CNC machine from sheets of wood. the wood we use is a medium density fiberboard which is much stronger than particle board often used in ikea products. this material is made from preconsumer recycled materials. the boxes and drawers we use are made from up to 30% post consumer recycled material and are completely recyclable.
the patent pending joints used in our products are machined directly into the furniture, so no tools or hardware are required for assembly, and the product can be assembled and disassembled repeatedly without wearing out. we know, we've tested it. as parts are slid together, they have to bend or twist slightly which creates tension between the parts, and keeps them from coming apart.
aug. 10, 2012: we now have a second coffee table prototype--it now has a bottom portion that makes the table ideal for extra storage space.

Yes, Probably. Shipping is a little expensive, we didn't include international shipping in the cost of our product. If you live internationally just send us a message with our country and postal code, and we will let you know how much you need to add to a pledge to cover the shipping. Hope this helps.
