The Only Tools Needed to Build This Modular Furniture Are Your Hands

Andrew LaSane

As anyone who has ever tried to follow an IKEA manual knows, assembling new furniture can be frustrating. The founders of UK-based company CrissCross hope to take some of the hassle out of building flatpacked furniture, Curbed reports. Instead of screws and other components that require tools, CrissCross's modular system uses peg boards and removable aluminum joints and feet—meaning the tables, desks, and cupboards can all be assembled and disassembled by hand.

Developed by designer Sam Wrigley, the eco-friendly CrissCross pegboards are made of wood from FSC-certified sustainable forests. Set for a May 17 launch on Kickstarter, the furniture collection—which is expected to cost between $115 and $350—includes bedside tables, single and double wardrobes, and single and double cupboards.

Check out the preview video above and learn more about the product when the campaign launches next week.
