The Float Table Seems to Crumble at its Base

We rely on our furnishings to be able to hold themselves up, and anything else that we might reasonably choose to put on top of them. The Float Table by Snarkitecture looks as though it should be a remarkably sturdy household object; however, a peek from one side of it will reveal an undermined base.

The design of the coffee table by Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen makes use of pristine white cast marble that's been cut into a large and perfect rectangular prism -- perfect, that is, until it was chipped away. In fact, the primary material of the Float Table by Snarkitecture was actually molded this way, with its flaws and all, to make an artistic reference to the way that even the toughest of substances become the victims of wear and tear.
