QuaDror in Action

This video (above) is a perfect visual tour through what the joint at the heart of QuaDror can do. Watch it morph from a desk to a bridge, from a room divider to disaster relief shelter. When Benshetrit first told me about the system (all in very vague terms over a coffee at Fratelli Lyon in Miami's Design District) he mentioned that it had applications from a residence he was considering in Central America to a lamp. Little did I realize that he actually meant this lamp, which was on view back in the Design Miami tent not 100 yards away. 

Perhaps my favorite of the QuaDror videos, however, is this one (below), that shows just how quickly a disaster relief structure could be erected, and, considering it seems to be built in a junkyard, how variable the component materials can be.

Finally, here's Benshetrit talking about QuaDror, as well as where his sense of design, comes from at the QuaDror launch at Design Indaba 2011 in South Africa.
