Every month seems to bring new milestones for the budding new aeronautics companies based here in the states. Whether it be launching a rocket and then landing at sea, or offering commercial flights into space, the limits are once again being pushed. While much of this is all achieved through long hours of building and running through complicated models, the real stuff at the core is a playfulness and curiosity. This Rocket coffee table from Stelios Mousarris captures exactly that.
Using hand carving, wood lathes, and 3d printing techniques, the Cyprus-based designer created comic-book looking rockets with soft looking exhausts that serve as legs for the glass-topped table. Inspired by his own love of aesthetics for Saturday morning cartoons, this piece of furniture is whimsical enough to bring any otherwise dull space to life. It’ll cost you though, as the Rocket Coffee Table’s price is set at $5,600. [Purchase]
