Product news: designer Werner Aisslinger of Berlin and Singapore has created a storage system for German brand Flötotto that's held together by plastic clips.

The ADD System comprises timber batons joined with plastic connectors hidden on the inside of the frame. Side, front and back panels can then be simply clipped to the plastic components with metal fastenings.

“ADD literally contains a ‘hidden hero’ since the highly complex joint is integrated into the load-bearing wooden elements in such a way that it remains invisible from the outside," says Aisslinger. "This gives the system an elegant, domestic look.”

Intended for the contract or domestic market, the system can be used to make open and closed shelving units, sideboards and chests of drawers.

The frame is made of bleached oak and the MDF panels come painted in a range of eight colours plus lighter and darker versions.

    Love it! Nice and simple joint.

    Nice inspiration for an IKEA hack.

    Looks nice, but the plastic joint seems a bad idea in terms of durability and reminds me of cheap IKEA solutions.
