The project began with an ordinary bracket commonly used in furniture. While a bracket is a cheap and common industrial part it still plays a crucial role in furniture-support. However, a bracket always needs screws to perform its role. Furthermore, once it is installed, it’s permanently fixed in a position. To improve these shortcomings, we developed a new bracket, called ‘climber’. This new type of bracket uses the friction between two surfaces and gravity to enable users to easily adjust the height of a bracket and rotate its direction. My goal in this project is to help crate a system where people can customise their furniture with minimum structure and material. Its potential use can be extended to architecture and to make DIY much easier.
