The Furniture Project

Is it possible to design furniture without screws?  Would they be tough enough?

In our furniture Project we are studying and working the different types of efforts and structures , we are testing the strength of materials and structures found in nature ; Did you know that a piece of paper DINA4 can support the weight of a 65cm tall stool without wrinkling ?

These days we are in a process of designing different items of furniture from not bolted assembled flat structures.

More information coming!
