London-based designer Philippe Malouin created these nylon turntables, which are essentially furniture-sized ball bearings, under commission for the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara:
"The tables are made of one hundred percent nylon," Malouin writes. "A simple circular groove in the solid nylon table top and body holds the marbles and allow the tables to turn easily."
He also created this variant for Salon 94 Design, the gallery that represents him in New York.
No word as to whether these will see production.
File this under "we made it because we can".......
Not a single video or gif of these turning :(
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
