Furniture designers' obsession with clamps has taken a new turn with this stool held together with one of the woodworking tools.
The legs of the Clamped Stools by Daniel Glazman are held against the seat underside by a single clamp integrated in the third leg.
Glazman designed the stool while studying at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.

Here's some more information from Glazman:
My name is Daniel Glazman. I am a young industrial designer recently graduated from the Bezalel arts and design academy in Jerusalem.
The 'Clamped Stool' is a three leg knock-down stool, assembled with a single clamp based joint, integrated with one of the stools legs that locks the whole construction together, giving it its strength.
The concept of the 'Clamped Stool' was born after I looked at some DIY furniture and thought to myself that they are not so simple to assemble and there is more desperation than satisfaction from the process of the assembly.
I decided to design a knock down stool that the whole construction will be held on a single joint, familiar from the field of hardware tools and this way will be easy and intuitive to assemble and fun and satisfying at the same time.
In a process which included six models, the familiar clamp had integrated with one of the legs, resulting with a stable, contemporary designed stool.
