Verbinder: A shelf joint for tool-less creation

Design students created a shelf joint that allows you to build solid wooden structures without tools.

Students from the University of Applied Sciences Schwäbisch Gmünd in Germany have created the Verbinder, a shelve joint made out of 100 per cent recycled plastic. Leon Rinne, Andreas Hutter and Michael Schoeninger designed the device as part of their fifth semester project.

The Verbinder

The Verbinder makes the construction of a storage unit easy, tool-less and sustainable for the environment. The tiny device allows anyone to build the kind of shelf that fits their budget, decor and taste. It  can be combined with any 12mm wooden board. It's up to the customer what kind of wood they use and how they combine it with the joint.  

The Verbinder can also compensate sloping roofs, offsets in the room corner or build a space separation without any additional tools.
