DIY Furniture with a Few SNAPs

Make tables out of almost anything with these clamping steel legs, no drilling required

Spanish designers Maria Roca and Erika Biarnes of new company Be-elastic have come up with a creative way to help furniture keep up with our increasing mobile, space-conscious and environmentally-sensitive lives. Their first design, SNAP, is a steel loop leg that clamps on and off—making it possible to create a bench, table, shelf and more out of almost any flat surface. Requiring no tools or drilling, SNAP can also be used with unusual materials like glass or marble, or if you're feeling more adventurous, things around the house like a checkerboard, drawer, a roommate's particularly hideous painting—the sky's the limit. Break down a shelf for one night to make space for a dance party, or build an eye-catching table in seconds for your next potluck. SNAP clevery makes furniture flexible to fit our lifestyles, rather than the other way around.

Be-elastic have successfully raised over $50k in their Kickstarter campaign; they are still accepting pre-orders at the reduced campaign prices for a limited time on their website. A set of two SNAPs start at $55.
