Parson's student Carlos Ng created items that fit together and come apart using magnetic pieces.

Earlier this month, New York design school Parson's The New School of Design and Brooklyn-based producer of functional and unusual everyday objects Areaware announced the winners of their collaborative design competition at annual design show Wanted Design.

For the competition, students were asked to design objects that were reasonably-priced and would fit in with Areaware's line of products. The young designers were also tasked to name a charity that would benefit from the sale of the objects.
