Floating Bed

Floating Bed

Floating in your dreams was never so easy! Universe Architecture’s Floating Bed is the world’s first non-gravity based object.
Design of custom made interior by architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars (Born 1973), Floating Bed is an art piece invented in 2006. The bed is made of steel and plastic, while industrial-strength magnets in the bed frame and floor allow it to hang 1.3 feet in the air. The bed, which can support up to 1,980 pounds, is multifunctional; it could be used as a dining surface or even a place to park your car. There are four wire cables that attach the corners of the bed to the floor—the cables are not there to suspend the bed or give it a floating appearance—they are there to keep it from floating up and away.

So a floating bed which drifts 40 cm over the floor is an epitome of advancement in the plan of boring devices. This invention appeared at the ongoing Millionaire Fair in Kortrijk, Belgium, the floating bed is the aftereffect of six years of advancement by Dutch modeller Janjaap Ruijssenaars working with Bakker Magnetics. Utilising the intensity of lasting contradicting modern quality magnets to empower it to float, the full-scale bed can hold 900 kilograms of weight, while a little one fifth scale stage can securely hold 80 kilograms. As of now, individuals are starting to see numerous applications for the straightforward yet outwardly capturing beds ranging from a couch, Coffee table, Japanese feasting table and especially in the presentation zones where galleries and top of the line visual merchandisers are starting to conceptualise various innovative employment. Four thin cables guarantee its still position and structure the main contact with the ground.
