Awesome Space-Saving Furniture Made of Planks and Broom Handles

Oregon-based Studio Gorm made this simple, elegant design for transforming, adaptable furniture. There’s not much to the studio’s Peg line: some planks of hardwood with threaded recesses; several threaded legs that can be configured as benches, tables, stools, etc., depending on their lengths; and a hanging rack for storage that makes the assembly look like an objet d’art.

The studio’s site indicates that the collection is available in several types of woods and finishes, leading us to believe that it might be for sale (we are trying to confirm that now).

We have some question about how stable the units are, especially with the longer-legs, but suspect that the wider diameter legs can handle a decent load.

What’s lovely about the design is its mechanical and aesthetic simplicity. There are few moving parts, no hardware, everything is repairable or replaceable and infinitely configurable depending on your needs. It demonstrates that transforming furniture need not have a complicated hardware or a particular aesthetic.

    While this looks like an AWESOME idea as a larger person I’d be concerned with it’s ability to hold my fat a$$!
