‘flexible joinery’ by dag design lab
created by israeli design lab dag, ‘flexible joinery’ is made out of a silicone casting over an inner metal skeleton.
adaptable to a range of unconventional configurations, the pieces provide a joining technique
that can be temporary and easily modifiable. the technology dates back to the 1950′s, with bruno munari’s ‘zizi the monkey’.
in dag’s rendition, the combination of the flexible material and the wooden beams creates visual contrast.
