MARS X- Future furniture / Furniture design

MARS X- Future furniture
MARS X- Future furniture

In 2030, NASA plans to send humans to the Mars. In limited transportation space, we need to design the furniture that can be used on the Mars. The soil of the Mars contains a lot of iron oxide which is natural adhesive. When we put soils into the mold and pressurize it, it will become a strong structure. Also, it is easy to storage air-supported structure. We use its expansion process to combine the surface and the leg of the furniture to make different kinds of furniture.
