In 1990, a little more than two years after the death of their friend Andy Warhol, John Cale and Lou Reed released an album called “Songs for Drella" in memory of Warhol.

The Float Table is a matrix of “magnetized” wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another. The repelling cubes are held in equilibrium by a system of tensile steel cables.
It’s classical physics applied to modern design. Each handcrafted table is precisely tuned to seem rigid and stable, yet a touch reveals the secret to Float’s dynamic character.
