If you’re looking for a coffee or side table that will serve as a conversation piece instead of a stable place to put drinks or a safe place for unshielded electronics, the Float table from Brooklyn, New York-based Rock Paper Robot is as unique as it gets. It’s composed of a 4x4x4 matrix of 64 magnetically levitating/repelling cubes that are held together with a series of hidden steel cables. Visually it’s a clever trick, but you can also easily deform the matrix with a little force, which makes me wonder how suited it is for holding anything heavier than a single brochure. And it starts at $2,000 so we’ll just file it away in the ‘not gonna happen’ drawer.
