Bead/Thread is a structural system made of a primary spherical module, the Bead.

The Bead is a wooden sphere cloaking a unique SS screw sealed with a brass plate. Reminiscent of those childhood building blocks and juggling games, interaction with the Beads choreographs the process of assembly. Each Bead is designed to screw into another; the structural assembly resembles a bead being thread which explains the name. The curved form provides great ease thus proving to be an ideal module to handle, while the Bead is an ornament in itself!

It is a system that works at different scales and ends up creating functional objects or interventions in space by adding tertiary elements.
