Heavy granite learns to float.

It is 30 years since our product conquered the world, and it is still fascinating to see how the silky-smooth surface floats weightlessly beneath the hands. The heavy granite ball weighing several tonnes can be easily rotated within its base stone – even by a child – without creating any wear. Just a razor-thin film of water separates the heavy ball from its base. The unique fountain has been copied often since – but the original is available only from Kusser.


Benefits of floating objects by Kusser:

  • Simple physical principles causing a great effect
  • Over 30 years' experience, and hundreds of floating granite spheres produced
  • Supreme precision in water engineering
  • Even children can move the objects easily
  • Unlimited lifespan, and safe to play with

Our projects with floating objects:

Imagine if you saw a child move a granite ball weighing a tonne. Or stone objects stacked several meters high, carefully balanced on a razor-thin film of water. You‘d be forgiven for thinking they were magic. There is, in fact, a secret behind these feats – thinking outside the box. The rest is simple physics ...
