Video: Holdfast Clamping System by Sam Weller
by Harry / June 27, 2012
From @samwellerdesign, a series of tables and shelves held up, and held together, with a clamping system made of bent wire.

Says Weller, "Holdfast began with the exploration of clamps and their infinite possibilities as both a tool as well as joining device."

"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." Weller's Holdfast 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".
