Rafael Morgan's "UnsTable" gives the illusion that this piece of furniture may fall down, but in reality--and this isn't exactly giving away the recipe for making the Statue of Liberty disappear--each of the legs conceals a fixed metal bar, covered by movable cubes.
We've covered Rafael's work here a couple times before--The Hope Table, and the Light Drop. Some nice touches of wit and delight.
