Nomadic Atelier is a Taiwan based design laboratory across the fields of experience, food and communication design.  Exploring latent inspiration and experiencing life are always the spirit of our studio. We endeavor in redefining and reconnecting the relationship between things and people by roaming at different unknown places. We believe good design can be beautiful and meaningful at the same time.

HAND-BUILT MOBILE KITCHEN THAT POPS UP EVERYWHERE

We've designed a mobile kitchen from scratch, from structure design, research, material sourcing, drilling and building, all by our hands. 

COMPACT & FOLDABLE STRUCTURE

When it's folded, the size is just around 40cm X 100cm X 100cm. When popping up at a event or a public space, just unfold the side table, and move the long racks up for hanging cooking utensils, light bulbs and silk printed banner. 

A kitchen from washing, chopping to cooking

Unfold boards from two sides, they become washing basin and gas stove, and the center part is for preparing ingredient and sauces.
