Ratchet Furniture by Harry Hasson

New Designers 09: Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication graduate Harry Hasson exhibited furniture held together using ratchet straps in tension at graduate show New Designers in London earlier this month.

Hasson designed the range to be assembled and dismantled quickly for people who move house frequently.

All of the furniture is made of coated plywood and is assembled without nails, glue, screws, or other fixings.

Watch a movie about the project here.

Here’s some text from the designer:

Harry Hanson
Ratchet Furniture

In a culture where young people are regularly moving homes, knock down furniture has become very popular and very cheap.

Sometimes cheap enough that people will often prefer to buy new products than have to disassemble their current ones to be re-built elsewhere.

I wanted to create a collection that is easy to assemble and disassemble, but will be robust and look good too.

All of the pieces in the collection are made solely of phenol-faced plywood held together with ratchet straps; no glue, no screws, just the tension of the ratchet on the wood.

It is a system that also makes use of the items around the home that are seldom used, so they become more functional while being stored.
