Magnetic Assisted Geometry Furniturecomments (7) January 2nd, 2014 in blogs
Designer Benjamin Vermeulen was unhappy with the mass produced, poorly manufactured, and overly-complicated flat-pack furniture available in stores. So he designed and engineered his own to present at Dutch Design Week this past October.
The Magnetic Assisted Geometry (MAG) Furniture set was made in line with Vermeulen's own personal design philosophy: "To make simple designs that people instantly understand how to use."
The set includes a table, chair, and modular cabinet which are held together only by strong magnets. No screws, fasteners, glues or tapes are used during this assembly and absolutely no tools are required. All pieces in the MAG series are constructed of steel and solid wood. No cheap laminates or particle board.
The MAG furniture can be shipped flat and can also be knocked down for storage or transport without sacrificing it's structural integrity.
While Vermeulen's MAG furniture is not yet ready for large-scale production, it does offer a refreshing change of pace from the uninspired sea of flat-pack furniture floating in stores currently.
