What would a house of the future look like? It would no doubt be filled with some pretty impressive gadgets and electronics. It would also feature some really impressive furniture designs aimed at maximizing space without hindering functionality. Here are 6 such designs that would use the simple concept of levitation to achieve this effortlessly.
Lago Levitating Sofa
This marvellous design by Lago features a sofa set and coffee table that look like they are floating in mid-air. While it looks like magic, the effect is achieved by glass supports placed at the base of these items. Nearly invisible, these glass panes are sturdy enough to support the weight of the furniture and raise it a foot off the ground.
Levitating Dining Table
This impressive design features a dining table that actually floats in mid-air without the aid of any of support or suspension. The table comes with a series of electromagnets attached beneath it that are magnetically oriented towards the steel base on the ground. The diner can choose to change the height of the table simply by changing the strength of the electromagnetic field between the table and the base.
Cloud Levitating Sofa
Here’s another impressive levitating furniture concept that uses electromagnetic force as well. The design features a magnetic base that creates an electromagnetic force strong enough to float a super soft cloud like sofa above it. The actual sofa is designed for maximum comfort and would give you a feeling of literally floating in the clouds.
Fade Out Chair
Canadian-Japanese designers Nendo came up with this really innovative levitating furniture design concept that can be achieved as easily as you can say A B C…. The designer used nothing but paint to achieve the levitating effect on wooden chairs. When glanced from a distance, the legs of the chairs would seemingly disappear into nothingness, creating the perfect illusion of levitation.
Golden Balloon Levitating Coffee Table
Designed by Christopher Duffy, the Golden Balloon levitating coffee table features a network of golden balloons which act as the base for a glass table top. The balloons are in fact made of steel and are attached to the base of the coffee table via rods. One look though and you will feel as if the glass top is floating on the orbs though.
Levitas’s EXO Levitating Bed
The EXO bed from Levitas is a simple bed that is attached to the wall to create the illusion of simply floating off the wall. Available in a multitude of sizes, the EXO bed also features creative AURO lighting that illuminates the empty space beneath the bed, playing more on the levitation illusion.
Levitating furniture designs are starting to show up in many households these days. These futuristic furniture designs are the perfect masters of illusion, and can play with your mind while offering the best in terms of functionality, comfort and luxury.
