tensegrity table and chair

The tables of this set are particularly beautiful, although they may or may not be practical. They are based on tensegrity structures which gain rigidity from a network of tension cables and compression struts. Whether practical or not the tables are beautiful, the chair perhaps a bit more awkward.
