Arara Nômade

In the days of steamships people used to travel with trunks. Huge, unwieldy, and solidly built. You can still see them today, rotting away in junk yards, or carefully restored and outrageously priced in high-end craft markets. In addition to luggage these trunks often served as furniture; they opened to reveal hanging space and numerous little drawers. They were finely crafted things, not just something to carry clothes, but to carry your lifestyle.

This seems to be the era that André Pedrini and Ricardo Freisleben, from Oboio Design Studios, seem to be harking back to with their Arara Nômade. It’s nomadic furniture — a trunk that turns into a shelves, drawers and hanging space.
