Meccano Set for Furniture Design?

This reconfigurable chair by Shizuka Tatsuno gave me the idea that some sort of "Meccano Set" for furniture designers would be a useful idea. I envision a variety of modular pieces that snap together and rearrange to make furniture prototypes that can then be tested for comfort and function. Just like the toys I made as a child using a Maccano set.

Thanks dezeen

Like te idea of Mechano Furniture.

I was thinking of lego style furniture. Maybe differeing size lego blocks, some metal some plastic, some soft or drapes required to make variety of furniture.

Maybe a machine that makes lego blocks out of domestic metal waste, something you plug in the wall.
