I love this “flexible joinery” by Dag-designlab in Israel. From designboom:

‘Flexible joinery’ is made out of a silicone casting over an inner metal skeleton. Adaptable to a range of unconventional configurations, the pieces provide a joining technique that can be temporary and easily modifiable.

They’re like twist ties for furniture!

    There is a commercial product like this already on the market that actually has more features – http://www.kwiktwist.com/Home.html

    Sorry for the buzz kill.

    My dad has something like this in his workshop. Maleable “straight” edges for drawing curves. Great for furniture making.
