This isn’t the Battleship Galactica at Universal Studios, Singapore. This is the work of Baptiste Debombourg who has transformed an ordinary public square in France into the site of an incredible art installation.

Titled Stellar, the piece utilizes the very objects that normally occupy the outdoor space—cafe chairs—and stacks 1,200 of them to form a dynamic roller coaster. Four large, colorful loops twist and turn within one another as seating is oriented sideways and upside down. Although there isn’t a car to actually ride on this static installation, the clever arrangements convey a feeling of movement, as if this were a real carnival ride.

Located at the Place du Bouffay in Nantes, Debombourg designed his project after observing the great presence that outdoor restaurants have within the city center.
