The Fall Off Table is an unusual piece of furniture. The surface of the desk makes it virtually unusable save for the center. Unless, of course, someone is smart enough to place a glass pane over it. Nevertheless, that doesn't appear to be what is intended.

A sculptural work of art, the Fall Off Table is defined by the placement of objects as digitally generated by a computer. Essentially, it uses a voronoi pattern, which is a mathematical way of dividing a space into a number of regions.

Created by Sam Stringleman, an industrial designer based in New Zealand, the Fall Off Table resembles a spider's web. Interestingly, the intricate design doesn't end on the surface of the table. Underneath the Fall Off Table, the legs connect in a visually striking manner.
