The Metropolis Collection looks like city skyscrapers in furniture form. The piece was done by Giacomo Moor, who used walnut wood and iron to frame the artwork.

As DesignBoom states, "the metropolis collection by Giacomo Moor for Post Design Memphis does not explicitly show its features, but it hangs suspended in an ambiguous dimension, inviting the user to interactively discover small unexpected secret compartments, drawers and trap doors." In the photos, silhouettes of small people have been placed in various areas of the installation, making the entire thing resemble a skyline even more. Without these small figures it would be harder for audience members to imagine the design as a city skyline, since many people would automatically picture everything as a furniture collection on display.
