Nomad Bench





$129.00 $114.00


We’re pleased to offer the Nomad Meditation Bench, a simple bench with a ground-breaking design. The Nomad combines comfort, portability, and flexibility in a way we haven’t seen in a meditation bench.

Comfortable: It’s hammock-style seat conforms to your body and allows you to sit comfortably for hours at a time.

Portable: This bench is perfect for taking on the road. It folds nearly flat, is very light weight, and packs easily in a backpack or suitcase. We don’t know of a bench that’s easier to bring with you to a meditation retreat, a park or anywhere else you’d like to sit.

Flexible: Unlike most benches, the Nomad allows you to change the height. By simply adjusting the Velcro on your fabric seat you may raise and lower the height for your perfect fit. This is great for sitting longer sitting, when you may wish to adjust the height as the retreat continues. This feature also allows you to easily share the bench with others – they can adjust it to their own height. The measure on the bottom of the bench helps you remember exactly where to set it back to.

You may choose one of two colors – natural or black. Handsomely crafted in the USA, right in Seattle. Designed by Norwegian architect, Åsmund Skard.
