Coffee table ‘bends’ reality

Un tavolo che sfida la legge di gravità

This surrealist coffee table is sure to make guests do a double take. Inspired by the 2010 blockbuster film Inception, Cyprus-based designer Stelios Mousarris’ Wave City coffee table appears to defy the laws of gravity, referencing a mind bending scene where the characters realize that the laws of the universe no longer apply within the dream world.

Using a mixture of wood, steel, and 3D printing technology, the design illustrates an urban pavement crammed with skyscrapers that curves up into the air and folds back inwards to render the buildings upside down. Featuring meticulously carved buildings suspended bottom up, the tabletop balances carefully on the lower section of the street, almost challenging gravity to topple it over.
