Stelios Mousarris, the Cypriot-based furniture designer behind the brilliantly executed Inception-inspired coffee table, has crafted a new coffee table that nostalgically recalls the designer’s own childhood. The Rocket Coffee Table is a round glass table with feet that are comprised of four playful mini-rockets balancing on its own cartoonish 3-D printed exhaust, well in the midst of blast-off.
(and we have a lift off)…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. Combining various techniques from lathe to 3d printing, resin casting and traditional hand curved pieces, 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 opportunity to each owner to form their own desired structure of the table. Take a trip down memory lane and enjoy your childhood once again.
