Laboratory for Timber Constructions
The benches and bleachers designed to welcome the spectators of the Nabucco opera at Lausanne Cathedral were entirely assembled using wood-wood connections, without glue nor screws.
Combining traditional mortise and tenon connections with snap-fit joints, developed at the Laboratory for Timber Constructions, these benches and bleachers can be disassembled and reused for future events.
