If you liked the mind-twisting film Inception (released in 2010), then Wave City Coffee Table influenced by the movie would certainly make you stare. Well, the movie is all about how a dreamer could control and manipulate his dreams for a certain purpose. Within the sequence of dreams, the dreamer could build entire cities that even defy the laws of gravity. It’s indeed a great film, but who would have thought that a designer could build a piece of furniture inspired by the movie?
Being highly motivated by the film’s gripping scenario, Cyprus-based designer Stelio Mousarris has created the stunning coffee table that conceals 3D inverted cityscape in its C-shaped layout. Of course, the table is not built out of mind material. The designer started working on this tangible table at floor level, and finally curved the structure to form the table top, concealing inverted urban skyline.
Inception-inspired coffee table is made from a combination of wood, steel and 3D printing technology that’s used for skyscrapers’ detailing and also to define the topsy-turvy cityscape. To make it more realistic, the carvings on each building is painstakingly detailed and scrupulous.
The coffee table seems surrealist and realistic at the same time. But you have to be careful and avoid sliding you feet under the table while sipping a cuppa joe. Or, you may knock off few 3D printed building models underneath.
It’s really captivating to see how graciously the wooden table folds onto itself forming a beautiful arched structure. You can purchase this mind-bending coffee table for €4,000 (approx. US $4,300).
