Add a whimsical touch to a stressful workspace with the 'Up Coffee Table' by Duffy London. London-based designer Christopher Duffy has recently released this glass-topped coffee table that gives the illusion that it is supported by 12 helium-filled balloons. Although it may appear to be floating it's simple trickery for eyes, as it is constructed from some heavy-duty materials.

This creative table endeavor was started by Duffy who aimed to create a cheerful coffee table that acted as an optical illusion -- mission accomplished. Despite its skill in appearing to effortlessly float on buoyant balloons and levitate above the around, the table has serious reinforcements. Having been constructed from metal resin composite, toughened glass and steel rods, the 'Up Coffee Table' by Duffy London is an exquisitely strong piece of furniture that simultaneously fools eye and induces a smile. Add some Disney-inspired decor to office spaces, waiting rooms and lobbies with this gravity-defying table.
