the first ‘bench clip’ was designed by mariana quinelato during the rebuilding of a photography studio. ‘the rafter that supported the roof deserved to be reused,’ she says. by putting together this wood with another found material, copper water pipes, the furniture respects the essence of its components, its aesthetics, and its history. the pipes are joined with connection and feet that embedded in the wood, without any screws. this displays the capabilities of proper construction systems placed in tension and compression.
