With multiple layers of stacked glass and wooden slices, duffy london has built ‘the abyss table’, replicating the dramatic depths of an indigo ocean.
The design creates a geological cross-section of the sea, completing the table as a 3-dimensional model of a geological map. ‘I was looking into sheets of thick glass at my glass manufacturer’s factory, and noticed how the material darkened as they added more layers – the same way the sea does as it deepens.’ designer christopher duffy describes ‘I wanted to use this effect to replicate a real piece of the earth’s sea bed.like a mythical power had lifted a perfect rectangle straight from the earth’s crust to use as his personal ornament. ‘ traditional to the design studio’s aesthetic, the furniture piece acts as both a conversation piece as much as it does a functional one.
