at the beginning of january 2016, designer stelios mousarris envisioned the ‘wave city’ coffee table — an instant hit with designboom readers. the cyprus-based creative bent reality by folding a wooden landscape of buildings in half, and using the overlapping surface as the tabletop. informed by the 2010 film inception — which brought viewers into a world where dreams could be manipulated, controlled and coordinated — mousarris’ coffee table depicted an urban sidewalk that seemingly lifted into the air, before finally folding back onto itself in a single, continuous curve.

 

the designer has now expanded on the theme to include a dining table. made out of steel, wood and 3D components, and using hand-painted coloring techniques, the limited edition piece spans 250 cm in length, 76 cm in height, and 150 cm in width. a glass surface placed atop the undulating S-shaped unit acts as a tabletop for users to dine on.
