You”ll need to convince people to spend $30,000 on coffee table.And that’s probably why
Siren Design Studio made its Teles Taxidi table float like a hoverboard.
But instead of the wires and special effects used for the movie,the Teles Taxidi’s glass
the movie, the Teles Taxidi’s glass tabletop hovers two inches above its base using a giant pair of rare-earth magnets.
The opposing force between the two magnets is strong enough to support books, actual coffee mugs, and resting your feet on the edge of the table. However, to prevent the upper portion from being launched across a room by the magnet in its base, and to keep it steady so that drinks don’t spill, the Teles Taxídi also features a series of support wires and pulleys that hold everything in alignment. But it still allows the glass tabletop to move so you can prove to guests that it is indeed floating and definitely worth the $30,000 you spent on it.
