Designed by Benjamin Nordsmark, this table will bring the nostalgic childhood memory when we play with small figurines in different universe in our imagination. But instead of our own imagination, the story takes place in a labyrinth inside a table. The figurines can be moved around by handles underneath it. The handles have a simple magnet mechanism and will not convenient enough to move the figurines from one side to another, but for a simple fun time it will be enough. You can see the video here. More description by Benjamin Nordsmark:

The Labyrinth Table was created to show how a well known object like a table can be given an extra dimension by creating a small universe inside of it. The labyrinth consist of several walls under a sheet of diamond glass, and inside of it there are six characteristic figures that can be moved around by handles underneath it. – Most people possibly remember from their childhood how they used to play with miniature figures in small universe similar to the real world. And these nostalgic feelings are the ones that the table should generate in people minds and encourage them to explore and go deeper into the story of the labyrinth. The table was built up with a main core in steel to make it strong enough to last for decades and was later on covered up with 5 mm. of massive maple wood. A nice thing about this detail is that the handles stick to all the surfaces on the table because of the magnetism.
