Float Weight / Paper Weight

Float Weight
Float Weight

The concept is a vision to have a perfect paper weight. It is a product that floats in thin air by using magnetic levitation. Thus it provides room to flip in papers. Once it is turned upside down, it uses the gravitational or magnetic force (depending on the material used) to act as a weight on paper stack.

While no papers are in place, the float weight acts as an attractive desktop installation, creating curiosity by floating in air.
