I really like the versatility of the Holdfast system by Sam Weller. The project started with the exploration of “clamps” both as tools and as a joining device. In shape they some what remind me of the old school hairpin legs. Check out the video.

The clamp elements that hold this range of furniture together are very simple in form and were based on the holdfast clamping system typically used for holding material to the surface of a workbench. The components are manufactured using a computer controlled wire bending device. The components are then inserted into a through hole and wedged under the material they are supporting, creating tension in the vertical leg and in turn creating a strong stiff supporting structure for shelves as well as side tables, stools and other occasional home furnishings.
