Are you sure "levitating" and not "suspension?"

It sounds like you're looking for a Chair Suspension Illusion, but don't know the name of the trick / illusion. I suggest doing some research on the Magic Café (searching for and reading old threads), and learning a lot more about the prop, where to buy eBooks that teach handling, etc. before making any purchases.

I know there are threads in the Grand Illusion area as well as The Little Darlings area.

There are other people who make them, besides MAK.

That's why I suggested reading other threads (here's a link to one to get you started). Do your research to find out what different performers say about the different props.

Jim Sommers, who was famous for making pack-down illusions (and well known for his version of the Chair Suspension), passed away in August 2018. So, you could find a used version of his chair suspension. (Jim Sommers' Illusions used to be sold through Klamm Magic, but Bob Klamm passed away in the summer of 2014.)

Abbott Magic sells their own version of the chair suspension, as well as the MAK versions (standard and deluxe).

Also, Jay Leslie builds the chair suspension. Sold through his company, House of Enchantment. Again, two versions.

Also, Bill Smith Magic Ventures builds them (although, maybe not listed on the website). Known as a very high end product. Used by Penn and Teller, etc. Shown on one of the threads I linked to above.

I meant to clarify. The reason I mentioned about Jim Sommers and Klamm Magic, is that you might find them mentioned on older threads about the chair suspension, when you're doing your research. I also wanted to provide some info in case you did a internet search, but couldn't find a current website for this "brand" of chair suspension.

You might consider my COI. It is a lot cheaper, and more effective IMHO! JR
