Designer Stelios Mousarris has added to his Inception-inspired series of coffee and dining tables, Wave City, with a new, sleek black edition coffee table. We continue to marvel at the gravity-defying design, which elegantly curves a fictional cityscape upside down, interpreting one of the most iconic scenes from Christopher Nolan's 2010 film.
Created from wood, steel, and 3D printing, the limited edition piece's black matte finish lends a film-noir feel. It's not difficult to imagine figures in dark trench coats and fedoras hustling through the dark, ominous streets, surrounded by endless rows of skyscrapers. The steel frame gives sturdy support to the dangling skyline. This limited edition table has an entirely different feel than its natural finish counterpart, with the continuous curve allowing light to filter through the cityscape, thus playing on the light/dark contrast inherent in the black design.
The table measures 40 inches (100 centimeters) long, 20 inches (50 centimeters) wide, and 18 inches (45 centimeters) high, leaving plenty of surface space for coffee table books and a game of cards. Mousarris' entire line, including the black Wave City coffee table, is available via his website.
