Dutch architect Janjaap Ruijssennaar’s floating bed defies gravity. Kept in a permanent state of suspension by magnets built into both the bed and the floor, it doesn’t require any other form of energy to keep it afloat, and according to the designer, it can hold the weight of a sumo wrestling team!

Questioning the ways in which gravity determines the image of architecture, Ruijssennaar wanted to design a product that used something other than gravity as its dictating force."In contrast to conventional furniture which falls towards the earth, Floating Bed falls towards the sky."
