The Clamp Brothers Collection is Composed of Carpenters' Equipment

Apparently composed of the scrap material and handyman implements that one might find surrounding a tool bench, the Clamp Brothers collection has a craftsman's charm. Straight-sawn plywood panels make up a chair and a table, connected and supported by enormous industrial vices.

The big metal braces serve to grip the timber surfaces; they replace the usual joints found in multi-component furnishings and feature lengthy tracks that function as supportive legs. One of the great things about the Fratelli Morsetti pieces by Iacopo Boccalari and Stefano Contini is their easy adaptability. You can swap one lumber board out for another of a different shape or size, altering the capacity of the Clamp Brothers collection to accommodate more or fewer users.
