From Surfer Decor to Wave-Inspired Architecture

These 25 wave-shaped works of art all attempt to represent the peacefulness of the ocean in land-based design. The ocean has always been a source of inspiration, and for good reason. It is the ultimate earthly frontier.

If you love the ocean (and who doesn’t?), these wave-shaped designs can bring a bit of the sea to your life.

Implications - The sinuous, winding lines of ocean currents are universally calming and visually arresting; contemporary building designers are using these cues to imbue the serenity of the sea into awe-inspiring architectural masterpieces. A curvaceous design turns what would otherwise be an ordinary edifice into an instant landmark, boosting its value and visibility.
