Newton Table by Makoto Tojiki
Japanese designer Makoto Tojiki created this amazing table to remind us of 1 simple fact – that the invisible force of gravity surrounds us every day of our life, and yet we are so often oblivious to it. It is fascinating to dwell on the idea that, for the most part, all shapes and forms are influenced by this invisible force of nature. Sitting on the tabletop is an apple – a kickback to an incident that may or may not have happened – that appears to be incredibly massive.
The Newton Table is, of course, appropriately named after the very man who described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the universe through today.
If you like this you will most certainly enjoy this re-imagining of Newton’s Cradle.
