Bruce Shapiro is the creative mind behind the Sisyphus coffee table that utilizes kinetic sand to create an interactive moveable for the home. The table contains an glass compartment that is filled with sand and rolling metal balls that can be shifted to create an array of patterns with the fine grains of rock.

The table takes its design inspiration from Greek mythology and allows consumers to bring the cultured design into their homes. The table comes in three different sizes including two different style coffee tables and en end table. The unit features a light up display that contains a layer of white sand that constantly shifts in design as the metal balls run along the grains and rearrange the artwork.
