Modular furniture on kickstarter


#1

Hi,

I just stumbled upon this and I think it`s brilliant.


#2

I agree that it’s brilliant, but $1,125? Ouch. Fantastic design, though. It’s like Lego furniture.


#3

I have to wonder a little whether they have the tensile strength dialed in for non-waif types. Having blown out some bent-laminated furniture in my time. But it sure is beautiful.


#4

Maybe there will be a forged steel version too. :slight_smile:


#5

1/4" at a time that would take a little while to build, but, pretty impressive design.


#6

Time to pull out the 3d printer

…the addition one, not the subtractive one.


#7

Its an extrusion, which usually are pretty cheap to make.
I priced dies for Aluminum extrusions and they were in the few hundred dollar range depending on complexity.
You then buy the aluminum extrusions by weight, was pretty cheap too.

But a very cool idea.


#8

It looks like it could be an aluminum extrusion, but this is made of wood for some reason.

I think I’ll save my money. :confused:


#9

That seems well within the realm of laser cutting. and if you had solidwork or another parametric modeler, the different profiles would be a snap.

This would be fun to play with for an afternoon for sure


#10

I dunno…I can imagine it grabbing and yanking out leg / arm hairs…

YEOWCH!! :scream:


#11

Whoa. That’s rad! Pricey, but very cool
