Core 77 has a nice review of “Nomadic Furniture” by Victor Papanek and James Hennessey. It came out in 1974, well before laser cutters were commercially available, but the design ideas are perfect for our Glowforges!
I had forgotten all about this book. My parents had a copy when I was a kid (kept alongside the Whole Earth Catalog), and I loved thinking about making a house full of things that I could fold up and take anywhere. Now I own way too much stuff, but it is still a nice fantasy.
