Studio for Design


The trestles are composed out of 4×4 timber pieces and an aluminium angle profile. The aluminium profile connects the timber elements using a cut out. All connections are inspired by traditional Japanese woodworking joints. The trestles use plug connections and do not require any screws. Hence, the trestles are easily transportable and dismountable. Slot-Trestle is part of a continuing investigation into the efficient combination of two materials to create bold yet minimal designs.
