What does furniture without gravity look like?
That's the question that a group of Silver Lake designers answered by building a concept room which, by rotating 360-degrees over the course of an hour, replicates zero gravity.
To replicate zero gravity -- otherwise known as the moment when "orthographic distinctions in drawings becoming obsolete" -- Bureau Spectacular, led by Jimenez Lai, designed a living module placed on mechanism that rotates very slowly. The volume makes a complete turn every hour, meaning that every 15 minutes, one of the multi-planed surfaces becomes usable (also, once every 7.5 minutes, two people inside the module will fall into each other!).
