Have You Ever Had A Floating Drink?

We almost chose not to blog this incredible creation from Nikola Zistakis, simply because the staff wanted them for themselves, but we chose not to be selfish.  If holding a fancy glass of bourbon scotch wasn’t classy enough, the Levitating Cup makes The act of drinking even cooler. The cup/glass hovers magically over its base, almost as if it’s attained nirvana, or is being abducted by aliens.

Using quantum levitation to achieve this feat, the cups are made from shatter-proof faux glass and come with chrome plated magnetic underside. The glasses/cups come in great variety, depending on whether you’re a juice, beer, coffee, wine, or even a dessert person. Plus, since these glasses are connected to their bases through a magnetic field, they don’t accidentally tip or spill over. They just pirouette around on spot in their own elegant style.  To pick up some of your own right here.

The Gravity Stool.


The Gravity Stool owes its unique shape to the cooperation between magnetic fields and the power of gravity.  Departing from the idea that everything is influenced by gravitation, a force that has a strongly shaping effect, Jólan intended to manipulate this natural phenomenon by exploiting its own power: magnetism. The positioning of the magnetic fields in the machine, opposing each other, has largely determined the final shape of the Gravity Stool.  It is the combination of the magnet machine with the plastic material, developed especially for this purpose, that enabled Jólan to start a small but efficient chain of production. The forms and products are characterized by the freakish and organic shapes that are typical of nature itself.

GEO Magnetic Lamp.


GEO Magnetic is quite an awesome lamp as far as design thinking goes.  The basic lamp is a halo of light that glides up and down a steel rail, using magnetic attraction.  The base halo holds a ball shape switch that looks suspended but is held in place using a fine thread.  There are three levels of illumination and the electric current flowing into each section varies in intensity, this allows the spherical switch to shift its position to on/off.  Super sick.  Besides being a desk lamp, the GEO Magnetic doubles up as a romantic moodlight when the light halo is glided closer to the base.
