This magnetic bed called "Falling Up" was named as one of TIME Magazine's Best Inventions of 2006. Made of permanent magnetic material, the hovering bed levitates through the power of opposing magnets. No electricity or other forms of energy have to be added in order to keep it floating.
Magnets placed in the bed push away from magnets placed beneath the floor, thus causing the magnetic floating platform bed to “float” in the air. Thin cables attached to the four corners anchor the bed motionless in its horizontal and vertical position, and the bed can be installed both indoors and outdoors.
Inspired by the built environment that surrounds him, it's designer Dutch Architecht Janjaap Ruijssenaars saw that gravity was the fundamental factor that binds all architectural and design decisions here on Earth. As he points out, "No matter what country you live in or what culture raised you, gravity binds all urbanism, architecture and design decisions."
Falling Up magnetic floating platform is available in 2 sizes:
Falling Up 1:1 measures 1.3m x 3m x 0.25m and will require a space of 12m x 6m for installation. It has a floating height of 40cm and lifting power of 900kg that is equivalent to eleven persons weight, and can be used as a bed (with a custom-made mattress), a sofa (with custom-made covering), Japanese-style dining table, or a shelf for displaying other, more common gravity-bound objects on.
Falling Up 1:5 measures 60cm x 26cm x 4cm and has a floating height of 8cm. It has a load of 80kg and comes with a specially designed base of treated black steel. It is first and foremost seen as a piece of art, but can also double as a very special product display.
Falling Up 1:1 and Falling Up 1:5 cost €1,200,000 and €115,000 respectively, and are available only through subscription at Universe Architecture.
