“Yeah, science, b----!," is something Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman would say if he came face to face with this $10,000 floating Table. You read that right. This "Float Table"—which is something you can't find in your trusty IKEA store—actually costs $10,000. So what's so special about this piece of furniture? For one, there was a lot of science involved in creating it.

The Float Table is a product of RockPaperRobot, an engineering and design company that specializes in shape-shifting and connected furniture. They're also the brains behind the Ollie chair, which is described as an "ergonomically designed shape-shifting seat with lumbar support." It's space-saving and is great for condos and homes with limited spaces.

But what's gotten the attention of many is the company's Float Table.

What is the Float Table?

At first glance, RockPaperRobot's $10,000 Float Table looks like a visual illusion. After all, objects can't float. But at first glance, the Float Table looks like nine blocks of wood floating to form a cube. The deception doesn't end there as the table is in fact somewhat...squishy. When one pushes on the cubes that form the table, they retract. The company describes it as the "dynamic character" of the table, which is in fact made possible by the steel cables and "rare earth magnets" that are embedded in the cubes.

Customizable furniture

Unlike those, one can find in IKEA, RockPaperRobot actually customizes their furniture.

In fact, the $10,000 Float Table can be customized, too. Clients can choose from as much as six finish samples, such as mappa burl, which has a lighter, more feminine tone, the curly walnut, crotch walnut, royal ebony, copper swirl, and black lacquer. The coffee table comes in 6 x 3 blocks, while the side table comes in 3 x 3 blocks.

Don't be fooled, though, as you can still place objects on top of these tables. Of course, you'll most likely have to limit it to objects that are not too heavy.

What is RockPaperRobot?

The company behind the genius that is the $10,000 Float Table is composed of engineers and designers led by founder and formally trained roboticist, Jessica Banks.

She told Bloomberg, "I truly love physics concepts and I wanted to inspire wonder and make new connections in the brain." The company prides themselves in creating pieces that is inspired by nature, but "redefines traditionally static stuff into dynamic platforms" that are in line with their philosophy of "increased functionality, applied technology, and individual style."
