Float Table: How Does It Work?

by Chris B.

How interesting is the furniture in your house? Looking around, mine is pretty bland. Don’t get me wrong, it’s decent stuff for the most part, it’s just not terribly interesting. I mean, I don’t have an NES controller for a coffee table or anything. Well if you’re on the lookout for an end table that will be a conversation piece, this Float Table will do just that.

Float-Box

The Float Table from RockPaperRobot is comprised of 64 blocks of wood, which appear to be floating independently of one another. They actually are, for the most part. A bit of steel cabling runs between them all, but they are primarily held in place by magnetic force. This make the table “sturdy, yet capricious.” For the $2,000 asking price, this conversation piece had better start some really good discussions.

    Haha don’t forget if you throw your phone on this table you might just make it go a little crazy with all those magnets around!
