PLEASE NOTE Steve Mould did a wonderful video on tensegrity tables I highly recommend watching the video and checking videos in his youtube channel.
Quite mesmerizing to see.
So what is it? Well a conventional table is under compression, increasing the weight on the table increases compression on the legs. A tensegrity table works differently. Although it has some components under compression, they are in a network of parts in tension. In our Tensegrity there is a central cable that is holding the top half up. The cable is under tension. The cables around the periphery keep the table surface central. Cutting any of the cables would result in the top part of the table falling over.
Our CNC machine Tensegrity table is supplied as a kit.
