Modular Furniture Parts (or Legos for Adults)
I've been considering building more flat pack furniture (I'm sick of moving around awkward cheap crap made of MDF or particle board) and I've been thinking of maybe making some kind of modular parts that could be configured in different ways to become different pieces of furniture. Does anyone know if such a thing already exists?
Also one of my sketches involved building frames out of posts and cross pieces with some surfaces built from strips of wood suspended on metal rods. I was wondering about the feasibility of making something like that.
I realize I'm sort of babbling here so I'm attaching an image from my sketches. Does this make any sense? What could these supports be made of? Originally I liked the idea of using metal for the contrast in materials, but I don't have a metal shop and I think getting them fabricated would be expensive.
If anyone has any input, let me know. It would be cool to have an open source modular furniture system (well I think so).
