Open Ending is a design concept that is based on adaptability to fulfill the requirements of the user rather than producing a predetermined product for a specific use. At the same time it is a tool for the designer herself to experiment with new ideas in a playful way.
This concept is based on various connecting components and stiffening elements that connect semi-finished pieces in various ways transforming them into a diverse series of potential objects.
The result is a finished product that is not stagnant, but always open to change with us. Every component that is utilized in the product can be easily disassembled and reconfigured into new forms.This process encourages users to become active themselves, and to change or modify the object instead of discarding it.
The connecting components consist of 2 elements.
1. brass case: in which you insert a wooden stick. A small device on the case helps to hold the wooden sticks tightly in place. There is also a threaded hole at the top of the brass case that creates the angles.
2. angles: these play an important role for the multiplicity in various construction possibilities. Both ends contain a threaded bolt that can be screwed into the brass case.
