House Of Cards Table Is Hopefully A Bit More Stable Than A… Well, You Know

It looks like it’s ready to collapse from little more than a napkin’s weight, but designer Mauricio Arruda’s House Of Cards table is actually able to support up to 550lbs. That’s because those 13:1 scale oversized playing cards are actually made from laser cut 4mm steel plates that are all individually printed to resemble real playing cards. And like with a real house of cards the plates are randomly drawn from a large pile so that each table is composed of a unique set of cards. But instead of relying on gravity and holding your breath to keep it standing, these cards are welded together.
