Curro Claret’s T300 Piece

Barcelona-based designer Curro Claret made the Piece, an innovative metal bracket that can transform found materials into furniture, available for sale for the first time at Salone del Mobile.

A line up of stools using Claret's metal bracket show the Piece's versatility. The furniture was made in collaboration with the Arrels Foundation, a group dedicated to helping the homeless in Barcelona. 

Claret's la Pieza (the Piece) is intended to provide furniture to people with little means to buy their own through a simple design. A single, laser-cut metal bracket can transform found wood into a stool, bench, table, coat rack, or lamp. In it’s easiest iteration, the Piece braces the center of the stool, and three legs are screwed into the base. More complex projects like a table may require one or more of the brackets, but remain easy to assemble. Any organization can request the Piece’s plan to make their own personal version; completed versions were available at Salone del Mobile for $52.
