We predict that in the near future, our generation will terraform Mars, which is the most similar to Earth, and live on Mars. Moving materials from Earth requires astronomical costs, so it is essential to make a variety of household goods with only the materials that exist on Mars. Therefore, using 3D printing technology through chemical bonding of Mars soil that is currently being studied, furniture can be produced infinitely. Moreover, Mars citizen can recycle waterproof fabrics from spacesuits, tents that are thrown away on Mars and use them as a flexible top plate of the furniture. In addition, referring to the virtual Mars habitat drawings in NASA's Mars project, we found that Mars' habitats are mostly domed to be less affected by the wind. By applying this, the surface of the furniture was adjusted to the curve of the Martian habitat wall to increase space utilization. In addition, it is designed as modular system furniture, allowing unlimited customization of furniture to suit the desired purpose and location through limited 3D printed modules. the furniture assembly structure which is composed with dot, line and surface can be completely magnetically assembled.
