Created by Greek designer Yiannis Ghikas, the Magneto table uses magnets to hold its different parts together.
In his project page, Ghikas admitted to having always been fascinated with magnets and wanted to incorporate invisible magnetic power into his work. The designer considered safety issues such as the effects of magnets on electronic devices and heart pacemakers. He also researched and experimented on technical and aesthetic aspects like size and shape of the structures, size and power of the magnets, and the best materials to use.
The Magneto table is part of his efforts to create a stable structure using magnets. The table can be assembled and disassembled without the help of any tools. The individual pieces of the table contain hidden magnets that bind them to each other.
You can view more about the project on the designer’s website or on his Behance page.
