the 2010 film inception brought viewers into a world where dreams could be manipulated, controlled and coordinated by the dreamer. this scenario allowed characters to build entire cities using their minds, ones which could defy the laws of both gravity and reason.

 

informed by the hit movie, cyprus based designer stelios mousarris has realized the ‘wave city’ coffee table that bends a landscape of buildings in half, using the overlapping surface as the tabletop. made from wood, steel and 3D printing technology, the piece illustrates an urban sidewalk scattered with skyscrapers that seemingly lifts into the air and finally folds back onto itself in a single, continuous curve. a series of meticulously carved buildings add a sense of realism to the otherwise surreal design object, which carefully balances on the lower section of the street.
