Three years ago, we first came across Stelios Mousarris’s wave city coffee table that bends a landscape of buildings in half, using the overlapping surface as the tabletop. That is the first time we saw this type of furniture design and we joked that the designer must love the movie Inception and the brain-boggling cityscapes in the movie.
It was quite a success at that time and that is probably the reason Mousarris continue his experiment on the “city” theme. After the city wave coffee table, Mousarris expanded the “City” series and added city desk, city dinning table, city pendant light and city standing light. Probably due to the functional consideration, two light designs are not as mind-boggling as the rest ones. And personally, my favorite one is the wave dinning table.
City Pendant Light – Twenty five limited edition pieces. (Dimensions: 100 cm Diameter)
Standing City Light – Twenty five limited edition pieces. (Dimensions: 70 cm x 150 cm)
Wave City Coffee Table – Twenty five limited edition pieces. (Dimensions: 160 cm x 60 cm x 76 cm)
The piece illustrates an urban skyline scattered with skyscrapers that seemingly lifts into the air and finally folds back onto itself in a single, continuous curve. A series of meticulously carved buildings add a sense of realism to the otherwise surreal design object, which carefully balances on the lower section of the street.
Wave City Dining – Ten limited edition pieces. (Dimensions of glass: 250 cm x 70 cm x 76 cm)
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. This table can comfortably fit up to twelve people
