In the 1970s, American designers Victor Papanek and James Hennessey sought to change the world through design, empowering the people to create their own inexpensive furnishings. This philosophy is brought to life in their two books, Nomadic Furniture 1 and Nomadic Furniture 2, which are reprinted in their entirety in this special edition. In these volumes, you will find everything from simple designs for chairs, tables, and beds to more elaborate pieces.

Nomadic Furniture provides easy-to-follow instructions for transforming inexpensive and recycled materials into comfortable furniture. They believe that everyone should have access to comfortable, stylish furniture, and their mission is to make furniture design more accessible to everyone. With Nomadic Furniture, you can easily create a bed, chair, sofa, stool, or table using simple materials and minimal effort.
