'holdfast' by sam weller
english product designer sam weller has developed 'holdfast', a furniture collection using clamps as a joining device.
the element has the ability to hold this range of pieces together with a simple form typically used for holding materials to the surface of a workbench.
the components are manufactured in mild steel using a computer controlled wire bending device and then powder coated to finish.
they are then inserted into a through hole in the veneered shelving and wedged under this supporting material, creating tension in the vertical leg and
in turn making a strong stiff supporting structure for shelves as well as side tables, stools and other occasional home furnishings.
