Wow, this is equally cool as it is smart.

Peg is a family of furniture from Studio Gorm with diverse parentage. The shaker peg rail, the korean wall hung table and the lowly shop broom. Peg is flexible furniture system made up of simple components, which can be assembled in a variety of ways to accommodate a multitude of scenarios. it can be just as easily disassembled, using no tools or fasteners. All components can be hung from a peg rail on the wall creating pleasing abstract compositions.

Studio Gorm is a collaboration between John Arndt and Wonhee Jeong. The two met while studying in the masters program at the design academy Eindhoven. they set up their studio in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Their office is now located in Eugene, Oregon where they also work in the product design program at the University of Oregon.
