Everyone’s favorite Swedish flat-park furniture line has been the butt of many a joke for years; baffling cartoon assembly instructions, crazy tools, and missing screws, nuts and various bolts. But now IKEA has unveiled a line that might just do away with all those frustrations—living room furniture held together with dowels that snap together without the use of a single tool. Hit the jump to see a video of the tool-free assembly in action.
The REGISSÖR line will hit stores later this month, and will include all living room essentials that don’t need to support too much weight—that is, bookcases, cabinets and a coffee table. The wedge dowels will be pre-fitted into the assembly pieces, so the furniture can be snapped together with one’s bare hands right out of the box, providing what is, in theory, a no fuss, no frustration, no-missing-parts flat-pack furniture assembly experience.
