Cloud Sofa:Innovative concept

I'm going to break your heart right off the bat: this is just a concept. But what an awesome concept it is. Dreamed up by D.K. Wei, the Cloud "magnetic floating sofa" captures the kind of thoughts anyone has while lazing around and staring at the clouds.

This is an elegant concept created by designer D.K. Wei. The Cloud sofa is supposed to give one the illusion of floating on their own personal cloud. A magnet in the base is supposed to generate enough magnetic force to hold the sofa aloft. The cloud is constructed from a plexiglass mold.

It is only natural that someone would take the Hoverit one step further with the Cloud sofa. Designer D.K. Wei’s magnetic floating sofa is designed for “ultra comfort and relaxation”. 

The soft upper part can somehow remain airborne thanks to the force generated by the bottom base. I wonder how much the user can move around on the cushion before that upper part cannot be held aloft by the magnetic force.

The Cloud sofa was apparently an entry in a relaxation design contest, and it was good enough to win an honorable mention. 

Sadly, this Cloud sofa still remains a concept now, but I would love to try it out. Granted, I wish there was some support for your back, as I would love to work on my laptop while resting on this

However, I believe the whole point is to allow the user the experience of resting on a cloud. I wonder if it is as relaxing as it looks. 

From the designer:

Cloud is a sofa concept designed for ultra comfort and relaxation. The soft floating upper part is supported by the magnetic force generated by the bottom base. No matter if you want to work and sit with comfort or simply a power nap to release the stress, you can always enjoy your time to relax on the floating cloud.
