Acclaimed for its capricious, yet sturdy disposition.

The table elastically deforms and stabilizes when force is applied. Watch it at

The Float table is a matrix of "magnetized" wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another. The repelling cubes are held in equilibrium by a system of tensile steel cables.

It's classical physics applied to modern design. Each handcrafted table is precisely tuned to seem rigid and stable, yet a touch reveals the secret to Float's dynamic character.

Even more counterintuitive than its predecessor, the Float shelf levitates out from the wall to give lofty purchase to your worthiest objects.

The front cubes of the shelf repel out from wall; the back cubes affix rigidly to provide stability. Create your own configuration, length, or wall sculpture.

A brilliant cut diamond-shaped table balancing on its point.

In contrast to a standard table, Brag is all face no legs. With a little extra commitment, we'll hide the base in your no one can run off with Your Precious.

CEO & Founder

Described as a creative hybrid, Jessica Banks invents products that transform how people think about the future of decor.

Inspired by physics principles, Jessica's creations expand the functional and aesthetic versatility of homes and workplaces.

A trained roboticist, Jessica holds an Engineer's and a Master's degree from MIT, where she was in the Humanoid Robotics Group within the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. She left graduate school just shy of her Ph.D. (in the 24th grade!) to teach about distributed power systems in MIT's Civil and Environmental Engineering Dept. Jessica also holds a B.S. in General Physics from the University of Michigan, with a concentration in creative writing- a combination which actually makes more sense on a quantum level.

Jessica's multi-disciplinary background has established her as a strategic and technical resource. This work includes projects such as campaign consultation for large ad agencies, development of global initiatives, viable products, and market strategies for international corporations, and design of robotic projects for Frank Gehry and Michel Gondry. She also used to be Al Franken's personal assistant.

Banks speaks at numerous conferences on topics ranging from science to manufacturing and her work has been featured in over 100 media outlets. She lives in Brooklyn and has superhuman peripheral vision.
