No, this isn’t an optical illusion, or digital trickery, but rather a real table. It’s called “The Float Table”, consisting of 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. Continue reading for a video and more information.
According to its designer, 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.
