The Rocket Coffee Table
Cypriot designer Stelios Mousarris brings us another unique piece of home decor.
You may recall my introducing you to his Inception-inspired Wave coffee table a ways back. The Rocket Coffee Table is another fantastical but functional piece from the former model-maker turned designer.
Since childhood, Stellios has had an affinity for action figures and cartoons. He’s been collecting nostalgic toys and retro action figures ever since. Looking at them makes him long for his childhood and inspired him to create this piece.
“I wanted to recreate that feeling of carefreeness and nostalgia with the Rocket Coffee Table. The design is visually playful bringing cartoon-like clouds and aerial rockets from a personal toy collection to life, in the form of a table.” – Stelios Mousarris
Combining various techniques from lathe to 3d printing, resin casting and traditional hand curved pieces, Mousarris says “this table is fashioned to draw a smile on the face of nostalgic adults, children, and children trapped in adult bodies.”
The rockets are not attached to the glass, giving the owner the opportunity to move them around and create whichever type of formation they would like.
