We've written about industrial designer and researcher Cui Zhihua before. Lately Cui's Instagram has been populated with new experiments he's been doing with what we think is PVC and a heat gun.
Here's what he landed on--he appears to be working out a low-tech connector for dowels. The only text description is "Industrial craft - connectors."
Cui was invited to present the work at this year's Paris Design Week, but I can find no press covering these connectors (at least, searching in English I can't).
I'm very curious to see where this could go. Cui, if you're reading this: Please send us a description of this project and your goals!
Thank you for your attention， dear Rain Noe. This is my experimental product based on the theme of manual intervention in industrial production and industrial materials, and it is still being tried. I hope to combine my handicraft and industrial design backgrounds to create some interesting things in the future.
Too bad PVC is one of the most toxic plastics out there..... might be wise to find a more friendly material.
True, though it's not hard to come by scrap or re-used pieces at least (I don't think I've ever seen green before...)
