The inspiration behind this project began with our shared interest in furniture as well as designing for functionality. Inspired by various plastic and metal adjustable table clamps, and keeping in mind Dieter Rams’ ten principles of design, we decided upon a PLA adjustable table leg connection that embodies functionality, customizability and sustainability.
The goal of our minimalist design approach is to produce a simple and honest product that allows the user customizability without over-complication. The two-piece assembly consists of the table clamp and a screw. The adjustability of these clamps allows for dimensional freedom in both the thickness of the tabletop as well as the length of the legs.
For the material, we chose white PLA for a clean aesthetic as well as sustainability. We believe that our adjustable table leg connector is versatile and useful for any user.
