New "Inception" Dining Table Designed with Gravity-Defying and Curving Cityscape

Earlier this year, we marveled over the Wave City Coffee Table created by Cyprus-based designer Stelios Mousarris. The innovative piece of furniture, inspired by the 2010 film Inception, seemed to bend reality with its fantastical form–it folded a wooden cityscape onto itself, using the buildings' underside as a smooth tabletop. Now, Mousarris has extended this warped dream with his spectacular Wave City Dining Table.

Like its predecessor, the dining table manipulates the urban environment. Tiny skyscrapers, churches, and other buildings are fixed around an s-shaped curve, their roofs greeting one another along this path. To make this imaginative furniture a reality, Mousarris utilized 3D printing with wood and steel, as well as hand painted coloring techniques.

Measuring 250 centimeters (98 inches) long, 76 centimeters (30 inches) high, and 70 centimeters (27 inches) wide, this large table is perfect for entertaining. When not in use, it serves as a stunning statement piece in one's dining room.
