Janjaap Ruijssenaars: Magic Moments in Floating Bed
Universal truth: beds on Earth are dictated by gravity. Well, not anymore! If you want to feel like the man in the iron suite, you can start by getting yourself the “Magnetic Floating Bed”. Creator Janjaap Ruijssenaars got his inspiration from Stanley Kubrick’s movie “2001: A Space Odyssey”. After seeing the monolith with its perfect geometric shape, a monkey in the movie gets an idea. Arguably the moment where humanity starts. straight lines are a metaphor for intelligence. Janjaap together with several specialists needed six years of research and development to announce the premier of their prototype, which was ten times smaller than the actual piece.
The real scale magnetic bed that floats in the air can support up to 2000 lbs. That’s right folks, you can park a car on the bed! In the floor beneath the bed and inside the furniture piece there are opposite magnets that push each other away. Four thin wires in each corner firmly assure it to the ground, keeping it from falling upwards. A reverse of reality as Janjaap puts it. The magnetic field on top of the bed is almost 0, meaning it’s laptop friendly. Watch out though for steel piercings and other metal accessories!
The unique bed can also be used as a dining table or a floating pavillion.
In order for your dreams to float permanently it’s a bargain that costs around $1,200,000.
