Tensegrity is short for tensional integrity which was coined by Buckminster Fuller. It is sometimes known as a floating compression structure.
The really fun thing about this table is that at the initial glance it appears to be floating in mid-air. Yet you can use it like a normal table.
Place something on the tensegrity table and it appears just to sit on the table floating in mid-air.
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.
