Interior architecture made easy

Nomad is a modular architectural system that can be assembled into freestanding, temporary partitions without hardware, tools or damage to existing structures. Made from recycled, double-wall cardboard they are available in ten colors in packs of 24 modules (sheets). Each box contains 14 square foot sections of wall when assembled in the closed configuration or 20 square feet in the open configuration. The modules can be arranged into open or closed configurations creating private environments or light and airy room dividers. The Nomad System can also be configured to create doorways and corners, easily adjusting to any indoor space, including lofts, basements or even office spaces.

More Juicy Details


The Nomad System can be recycled again to make new paper products of similar quality, avoiding once again the landfill. Existing recycling infrastructures for collecting and re-using cardboard are fairly common which makes it easy for our customers to close the recycling loop, save trees, save energy, and have an impact.


This product is made from wood fibers, so the raw material is a renewable resource. Because the forests from which the paper is made are responsibly harvested and managed, they are replenished with minimal impact on the environment.

Recycled Content

The fiber content of the Nomad System is collected from manufacturers of paper products (pre-consumer waste) and paper collected from homes and offices through recycling programs (post-consumer waste). The product’s recycled content diverts waste from landfills and reduces the ecological footprint required to make the kraft paper used in the Nomad System's double-wall corrugated structure.


Reconfigurable modules provide a low impact alternative for temporary walls and transient lifestyles.


Made in the United States. Manufacturing locations were selected for their proximity to our studio as well as for their practices and labor conditions.
