Tittle:
Clip lock for assembly/disassembly of modular furniture systems without tools
Summary:
A German university responds to the demand for easier assembly concepts for furniture, e.g. in the do-it-yourself market. They offer a concept for completely tools-free assembly of modular furniture systems via a connecting unit with a special geometry. This can be adapted to various materials and dimensions. Licensees from the furniture sector are sought.
Description:
In the last years huge efforts have been made to develop screw-free furniture concepts that can be assembled without specific tools and competences. This aspect is becoming increasingly important in the field of do-it-yourself furniture kits both for private customers as well as for professionals who need to frequently assemble temporary furnishing, e.g. expositions booths. Especially in the latter case, it is crucial to rely on a system that is not only easy and quick to handle but that is also resistant to frequent assembling/ disassembling cycles.

A German university offers a solution. The invention consists of a tool free connector unit for a modular furniture system, such as shelves, space dividers, display furniture, and much more. The particular geometry of the three-piece system, including a clip-shaped closing element, ensures an outstanding stability, which is a critical aspect in other screw-free systems that are already on the market. The assembly and disassembly can be easily performed by anyone without specific competences and completely tools-free. Assembly and disassembly procedures do not damage the components which are designed to survive several relocations.

The system can be implemented in any modular furniture system. It can be tailored to ensure a stable connection of different units. Its versatility in terms of materials and nuances make it suitable for a wide range of designs and applications.

Licensees from the furniture sector are sought.
