Nomadic Furniture  UP120


Victor Papanek and James Hennessey set out to change the world in the mid-1970s, empowering the people to create their own inexpensive furnishings. In their vision of home design, everything is lightweight, folds, inflates, knocks down, stacks, or is disposable. In their books, Nomadic Furniture 1 and Nomadic Furniture 2, they offer simple instructions for making beds, chairs, sofas, stools, and tables, using inexpensive and recycled materials. Their ideas open up channels for creativity, as well as for saving money and lightening a household's footprint.
