Table Made From Magnetic Levitating Cubes

floating-table Ever on the lookout for unique and innovative furniture, we’re intrigued by Rock Paper Robot’s Float Table. It’s made from a matrix of wooden cubes with strong magnets embedded within. The magnetic forces repel the cubes from one another, but a series of steel guide wires keep everything in place. This gives the table a solid appearance while undisturbed, and a wobbly look when touched. We’re not sure how stable a table it is, and placing a wine glass down on it might be a dicey proposition. But it sure is a talking piece that anyone with money will be more than happy to have in his living quarters. We say ‘people with money’ because it’s one of those pieces with no advertised price, placing it squarely in the “if you have to ask” camp.

Edit: A reader informs us that the table is $10,000 and is available here.
