Located at the Vetura Lambrate exhibition space, the Cloud Table by Studio Maks features wireless phone charging pads and WiFi signal strengtheners.The charging pads are integrated into the table’s surface, so visitors merely have to lay their device on top of the table for them to charge.

The studio’s founder, Marieke Kums, notes the convenience factor by saying, "Our aim was to design an environment at the Salone in Milan that would accommodate people’s needs for social interaction and information exchange during this week long design fair."

In terms of design, the table is constructed out of poplar wood and steel, in a fluid shape that Kums describes as "sensual." Indeed, the table looks almost as thought it’s floating, living up to its name.
