I have been noticing a floating trend in design lately. Designers and their manufacturers have been producing some innovative products that are either suspended where otherwise it would placed directly on the floor or have a smooth flow of traffic patterns around them, where otherwise would have been anchored to the walls. Remember the Kitchen, that’s one nice floating kitchen.
Here are a few more interesting pieces. First, Victoria & Albert Free Standing Cabrits Tub
Vitraform Glass Sink
Floating bed by Presotto Italia
Another floating kitchen by Petite Cuisine
And last but not least a floating conference room table by Bozhinovski Design
Is this because of the limited living spaces that are being built? I do know they give the feeling of openness and I also like the fluidity in lines and form and yet there is no compromise in function.
I guess we no longer need to feel secure and grounded. Let me know what you think.
