Must-See: Wave City—An Inception-Inspired Coffee Table

Talk about having a conversation starter in your living area!


It's been said many times: inspiration is everywhere and can strike at any time. 

For designer Stelios Mousarris, it was when he saw Leonardo DiCaprio's Inception for the very first time. He instantly knew he wanted to build the Wave City Coffee Table, which draws inspiration from the scene in the movie where the dream architects showed their ability to bend visions. 

The table showcases a folded urban landscape, an exact replica of what you would see on-screen. It was built with a combination of wood, steel, and 3D printing technology—from the skyscrapers down to the smaller structures. If you look at it, you would see that Cyprus-based Mousarris paid attention to every little detail. 

Stelios started out as a model maker and assistant for Fosters and Partners at Duffy London before he began working on projects of his own. Today, he runs a company called Moussaris and a design website where you can order this coffee table and more.
