Now, furniture that snaps together with help from magnets

New York, Dec. 30 : A new magnetic furniture that snaps together without the need for a screwdriver is doing the rounds within the design world.


Benjamin Vermeulen's 'MAG' (Magnetic Assisted Geometry) range first debuted at Dutch Design Week in October this year, caused quite a stir, the New York Daily News reported.

The range includes a chair, desk and a set of modular cabinets, held together by powerful magnets, and can be assembled and disassembled without any effect on the pieces' structural integrity.

The main components of each piece: minimalist steel sheets and wooden frames lend the range an industrial vibe, with options like glass available as cabinet doors.

The table's held together by metal pegs slotted into magnetic leg tubes, while the chair seat clips into place on its two-part frame.
