The Abyss Table by Christopher Duffy

Christopher Duffy has designed alimited edition piece named the Abyss Table for Duffy London.

“And when you gaze long intoan abyss, the abyss also gazes into you”
Duffy London made its name byfashioning remarkable designs out of thin air: the uplifting Up Table, thatfloats on a host of balloons; the Flying Carpet table, that hovers mysteriouslyabove ground; the convivial Swing Table, circled by bobbing suspended chairs;the Shadow Chair, perfectly poised on two legs. This autumn, Duffy casts an eyedownwards – looking to the depths of the ocean to dream up a dramatic newcoffee table, that introduces the majesty of the big blue to the interior… Aswell as servicing you with somewhere impressive to put your cup of tea.

Like all of Duffy’s designs, the AbyssTable is a conversation piece as much as a functional one. But while previousworks play with gravity, this new design is concerned with depth, and creates ageological cross-section as mesmerising as the sea. Designer Christopher Duffyexplains:

‘I was looking into sheets ofthick glass at my glass manufacturer’s factory, and noticed how the materialdarkened as they added more layers – the same way the sea does as it deepens. Iwanted 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’scrust to use as his personal ornament.’

The design team spent a year developingthe table in their Londonstudio, experimenting with sculpted glass, Perspex and wood, arranged like a3-D representation of a geological map, until they re-created something of themesmeric abyss that had first captured Duffy’s imagination.
