Featured in over 100 media outlets, the Float tables are acclaimed for their capricious, yet sturdy disposition.

The table elastically deforms and stabilizes when force is applied. Watch it at https://vimeo.com/51625557

The Float Table is 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.

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.

The Brag Collection of tables and benches are characterized by cut and color. Coming soon...
