Ampersand table combines the beauty of movement with fine materials and craftsmanship.
Technology is not a goal in itself, it's just one of the ingredients, complimenting the wood and concrete housing.
Under the glass tabletop a single steel ball silently travels through a layer of sand.
Complex algorithmic patterns emerge from a single trace in a steady, meditative process.
We'd love it if you joined us on the journey! We'll only send you stuff we think will interest you - progress reports, new project info, subscriber deals.* We don't share your personal info with anyone and don't use it for anything but sending out the newsletter.
Select any of the curated tracks, browse through the community-created ones or design your own.
Use the intuitive app or get nerdy and program the table's movement in your favourite programming language.
Speaking of control, the operation is offline-first. No internet connection is required and there’s no external servers to rely on. You own the device in every sense.
The mechanism that drives Ampersand was designed from scratch to maximize your creative freedom and provide the smoothest experience possible.
The movement is controlled with sub-millimetre precision using the same components you’d find in a top-of-the line 3D printer.
Longevity was a priority in the design process. Stainless steel and aluminum structural parts were produced with continuous, uninterrupted operation in mind. The mechanism is accessible and easy to customize or service.
A t Moving Pieces Studio we want to combine design and technology in a way that brings out the best both. We want to provide an alternative to the tech that fights for your attention with notifications and bright screens - the slow food of technology. Objects that are designed to inspire creativity and engage you in the process.
