The Thread Wrapping Machine is a tool to join different types of material with only a glue-coated thread to bond it. No screws ore nails are used to join the different components of the furniture’s. By using this construction method materials such as wood, steel, ore plastic can be joined to form objects and spaces.

I wanted to create an externalised joint that would enable me to combine a big range of different materials that normally would require very time consuming methods of jointing them together. At the same time a decorative pattern appears with the different colours of the thread.
