Shipping furniture unassembled is more economical and more environmentally friendly. But flat-packed furniture is often made from low-grade material and its assembly is far from straightforward. Assembling Benjamin Vermeulen’s ‘MAG’ (Magnetic Assisted Geometry) furniture is easy, takes minutes, and requires no tools. The furniture, made from high-quality steel and wood, snaps together with the help of powerful magnets. It can be assembled and disassembled without losing its initial structural integrity. This means you can take it apart if you are moving or selling it on. And replacing parts is easy since they come right off and reattach with the same ease.
