A new work at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) can thank a pair of Israelis for its success.

The “Earthquake Proof Table,” was a project conceived at Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem. MOMA’s board recently inducted the “Earthquake Proof Table” into its permanent collection at the department of architecture and design.

According to NoCamels.com, “the table is designed to withstand the impact and weight of immense objects by flexing and absorbing the pressure.”

The table was developed by Arthur Brutter, as part of his final schoolwork project, in tandem with his lecturer Ido Bruno from the department of Industrial Design.
