Wave City Coffee Table by Stelios Mousarris
Inspired by the film Inception, this table is a well balanced mixture of wood, steel and 3D printed technology.
The coffee table, titled Wave City by designer Stelios Mousarris, is a beautiful example of the elegant and complex pieces that can be created by 3D printing and in more than ‘just’ plastics. This particular piece is created from wood and steel and builds on Mousarris’ history of creating pieces that defy the forms expected of the materials with which they are produced, for example a chair that is entirely made of a Persian carpet that has been hardened into seating.
For this table, a sheet good was used as the base upon which a series of buildings, each sufficiently detailed to move beyond anonymity and to draw your eye to look inside of the cityscape as unit.
That base is then disturbed by bending up and over itself so that part of the city hangs down as if the urban landscape is a subterranean wonderland filled with stalactites and stalagmites.
The balance of the wave of the table is held in place by the engineering of a perfect cantilever that leaves the viewer feeling the dynamism of potential movement, capturing the wave but without freezing it.
This table is 100 cm long and 50 cm wide.
