U-JOINTS is a group exhibition that explores the theme of connections in design by looking at the multifaceted world of joints. The exhibition features all kinds of joints, from the most common to the most innovative, as well as those that have had the greatest influence on contemporary design. More than 50 contemporary designers and industry professionals display new products, prototypes and conceptual pieces – many specially made for the show. In addition, the exhibition features examples of some of the world’s most ingeniously engineered joints; private collections of knots and fasteners; and masterpieces of traditional Japanese and Chinese wooden joinery. The joint comes in every possible size and material: nanoscale or the size of a room; plastic, steel, carbon fibre, wood or wool. A joint might be ingeniously engineered or the result of garage tinkering. Truly multivalent, the joint is a fundamental element in almost any designed object, be it a bridge, a piece of furniture or an everyday product. It is the kind of detail that holds the world together.
