Floating Dining Table Lets You Enjoy Levitating Lunches

Levitating tables are usually reserved for magicians and seances, but the Floating Table from designer Ingo Maurer is an elegant addition to a non-magical dining room.

The legless table was built in collaboration with Established & Sons and seems to float above the matching chairs. In reality, the tabletop is supported by specially-designed armrests that extend out from the accompanying chairs.

The chairs are able to pull out from the table thanks to a hidden mechanism, allowing you to sit down comfortably and then pull the chair in closer to the tabletop.

Along with the novelty factor of a legless table, there is a practical aspect to this unusual piece of furniture. Sitting at a table without legs means that there is no more fighting for leg space, and no one gets stuck sitting with their knee uncomfortably pressed against the table leg.
