Well know for his surreal and sculptural furniture pieces, Cyprus-based designer Stelios Mousarris has unveiled its latest creation, the Rocket Coffee Table. “Ever since I was a little boy, I loved playing with action figures and spent my weekend mornings watching cartoons on the TV. I have been collecting toys and action figures and anything nostalgic from my childhood until this day.” says Mousarris. “Every time I take a look at my collectibles I remember my childhood, when I used to play for hours on end without a care in the world. 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 Rocket Coffee Table is available for purchase at $5,647 USD here.
