Joint number one
It is not a wood joint, you won’t find it when you google wood joints. It is two linear structures meeting with grace and elegance. It is both sharp and rounded. It has a character that just seems so promising.
Joint inside, not outside
So the inside is based on the Festool™ Domino system that is capable of bringing solid strength to almost any combination of wood components that are not entirely wrong in their orientation. Here it works perfectly well – on the inside. The outside is an easy-going deception. It achieves much more though. Whenever I feel an opportunity for a new design language to arise I get really alert. This here is a design language element and its key characterstic is the way it runs the radius across the two components while contrasting it with a sharp inner corner. The orientation of the wood grain is correct there. The elegance of that corner is unique. It is also very flexible in proportions and angles. A design language in the making.
The first in the series, a quick test.
Balance of opposing elements.
Domino joints inside.
Angles expand the design language scope.
Grow on and on.
