For those left doubting the Poised Table, its creator Paul Cocksedge shows first-hand that this thousand-pound rolled-steel wonder can hold up his own weight, despite so little of its once-rectangular surface contacting the ground.

A limited-edition set, this is one of ten total that will be made – ten thousand pounds worth of tables in all.
