Inspired by Weck Canning jars, I wanted to see if i could design a system of flat pack furniture that could be assembled using compression and tension, with clamps as a joining mechanism. 
Mimicking the function of canning jars and seal-tight mechanisms, I started playing around with different gauges of metal and bending clamps to see how tight I could hold two pieces of wood together.
After weeks of trial and error, I was able to prototype a works-like flexible clamp.
