This Table is Made From Levitating Magnetic Cubes [Video]

The Float table is a matrix of “magnetized” wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another. The repelling cubes are held in equilibrium by a system of tensile steel cables. It’s classical physics applied to modern design. Each handcrafted table is precisely tuned to seem rigid and stable, yet a touch reveals the secret to Float’s dynamic character.

  1. What Paul and Daniel said. A terminal case of form over function. I have enough trouble keeping stuff from spilling when they are on the kitchen counter, (solid) table or a shelf. A wobbly table would be a disaster.
