You’ve heard of getting lost in a good book, but can you say the same about a table? British design brand Duffy London is back with yet another mesmerizing creation that invites viewers to lose themselves in its ocean chasm-like depths. The Abyss Horizon table, the latest in Duffy London’s Abyss table series, mimics the ocean depths with crystal clear glass layers and sustainably sourced wood.
Unlike Duffy London’s previous iterations, the Abyss Horizon is circular rather than rectangular. This table, in addition to being a striking conversation starter, is made to order and handcrafted by local artisans and in-house craftsmen. The layers of cut glass create the illusion of a bottomless sinkhole in the center of a table. The light-colored wood that surfaces at the top mimic islands and landforms with sandy white beaches and aquamarine waters.
The Abyss Horizon Table is limited to 25 editions and can be made and delivered within 12 to 14 weeks. Price is available upon request. “‘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,” said Christopher Duffy about his inspiration behind the Abyss tables. “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.” The Abyss Horizon is available to view through the Sarah Myerscough Gallery.
