“Heat Shrink Joinery” – It’s not just for wires!


Heat Shrink Joinery, it’s not just for wires! – thanks Andy.

Nicola Zocca’s brilliant heat-shrink joinery was one of our favorites from the Design Products section of the Royal College of Art final show, which opened last night in London (a must-see). The series is appropriately titled “Shrink.” The idea is wonderfully simple, and the execution precise and imaginative. Nicola describes it best: “So, just using hot air, it’s possible to build and fix chairs, bookshelves and tables.”
