Magnetic Flat-pack Furniture by Benjamin Vermeulen

Say hello to a new era in flat-pack furniture. It’s a time to bid farewell to screws, fasteners & Allen keys and get accustomed to new phrases like MAG – Magnetic Assisted Geometry. Benjamin Vermeulen has designed a range of furniture that simply snaps together with super-strong magnets. The furniture range is made of sheet steel and solid wood, with magnets in the wooden parts allowing each piece to be assembled in minutes without tools. The furniture can be assembled and disassembled with ease many times over without losing its initial structural integrity, meaning it’s fine to take it apart when moving house and storing etc. Really excited about this development in furniture design – well done Benjamin!
