I blogged a few weeks ago about the Escher Joint by Benjamin Parton RCA, and noted a lack of web details. Benjamin has since kindly sent me some images.
‘…Partly inspired by the deceptively simple aesthetics of the Rietveld joint, I wanted to develop a functional yet elegant system that was flexible enough to utilise a range of common materials yet simple for a manufacture to produce and and individual to use.The resulting shape is a lattice based on identical pieces of square section aluminium tube cut on a bias at each end and is reminiscent of Escher’s mathematically inspired drawings.

I like the simplicity of this system, allowing the user to build self directed configurations using standard timber cuts. Thank you Benjamin.
