Clamp stool / Clamp stool

Clamp stool
Clamp stool

I have made a stool and am currently developing a series of furniture using the old technique of the wooden clamps.

The furniture is inspired by old Scandinavian furniture with their simple shapes, functionality and use of wood.

The technique I'm using for assembling and disassembling the legs, I found in the wood workshop at school. I was studying different joinery techniques when I had the idea of using the old clamp technique as a joinery technique.

My furniture can easily be assembled and disassembled without any tools at all. The handle fastens and loosens the leg from the seat - perfect for transportation and moving!
