Levitating Design Labs, the creators of Levitating X, are back with more gravity-defying art with their Levitating Sculptures collection. The electromagnetically suspended 3D works of art feature the largest and heaviest objects to ever be levitated using a single standalone device.
Inspired by the intersection of where science meets art and made possible by the advent of state of the art 3D printing technology, this series highlights the role of technology in all facets of life much as Duchamp’s provocative Fountain sculpture pushed the boundaries of what could be considered art.
The new collection features three pieces in three different colors, with more planned for the future:
Sitting Buddha — For creating harmony within a space and inspiring contemplation
Firebowl — For encouraging gathering and creating a sense of community
Polystone — For reminding one to be strong and to persevere
The Sculptures come with the Levitating brand’s strongest Base+ technology to date and are paired with their newly developed assist plates, which make it even easier to levitate on demand.
“Our hope is that the burgeoning community of tech art designers and makers will be inspired to experiment with this new form of sculpturing and create their own pieces,” says Joel Paglione, founder of Levitating Design Lab. “We’re endlessly inspired by the creativity surrounding this culture and we hope to give some of that inspiration back by making the impossible possible.”
