This designer twists stuff into furniture

Take a glance at one of Stelios Mousarris’ designs and you’d probably do a double take on it. After all, it isn’t everyday that you come across a cityscape folded into a coffee table, or a carpet folded into a chair that resembles the magic carpet from Aladdin that you’d probably be cautious to sit on.

A Cyprus-based designer ad modelmaker, Mousarris creates furniture that is almost out of this world. For the wave city coffee table, he used a mixture of wood, steel along with 3D printed technology, while his carpet chairs – a collaboration with artist Jan Blythe – are handmade and come in a selection of Persian carpet styles.

Likewise, his other pieces don’t stray far from the realm of illusion, pushing the boundaries of design and the use of various materials.
