Balloons appear to suspend this glass table in mid-air

recently unveiled a playful glass table that appears to be suspended in the air by over a dozen balloons. Despite its weightless appearance, the UP Balloon Coffee Table Round is made from heavy toughened glass, metal resin composite, and steel rods—all of which were ethically sourced and assembled by hand by local craftspeople. Duffy London only created 25 tables for the limited 2015 edition, an upgrade to the earlier UP Balloon Table that features a rectangular, rather than circular, tabletop.
