Building furniture the IKEA way is almost simple enough for anyone, but Poles Apart by Adrian Bergman requires no handyman experience at all, because no tools are necessary for the construction of these pieces.
A graduate of the London Metropolitan University, the creator of this compelling system of easily assembled objects presented his project at the New Designers exhibition. As a proposal for an efficient retail display collection, the various wooden components can be flexibly arranged to form desired custom furnishings.
Large wooden dowels make up the vertical supports and horizontal bracing for the tables and clothes racks, while pre-drilled timber panels make adequate flat surfaces for visual merchandizing. Poles Apart by Adrian Bergman can be intuitively and imaginatively put together by any sales associate, and temporarily fixed together with black elastic O-rings.
