Red cross and bandage-shaped joints in various angles bring together sticks and planks of wood for creative DIY furniture with virtually no limitations. ‘Patch Project’ by Polish studio Beza Projekt could be used to make anything from a simple side table to a complex and sculptural work space.
The studio demonstrates the concept by building a desk inspired by a pirate ship, complete with a mast and flag. The joints are meant to be seen, standing out in sharp contrast against painted or unfinished wood.
The designers at Beza Projekt suggest throwing symmetry out the window, simply because you can. The joints are available in seven different angles for a wide range of configurations. “Chaos is incorporated into their design, so you can spontaneously form constructions where the technical component is also a decorative one.”
Beza used a similar concept of joints for its Dream Nation Pop-Up Stand, a series of plastic connectors shaped for use with bamboo.
