The deep as ocean Abyss table designs by Duffy London

Looking to the depths of the ocean Duffy London designed the Abyss Table, a dramatic new coffee table, that introduces the majesty of the big blue to the interior.

With multiple layers of stacked glass and wooden slices, that table design creates a geological cross-section of the sea, completing the table as a 3-dimensional model of a geological map.

Designer Christopher Duffy explains: “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. 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 design team spent a year developing the table in their London studio, experimenting with sculpted glass, perspex and wood, arranged like a 3-D representation of a geological map, until they re-created something of the mesmeric abyss that had first captured Duffy’s imagination.
5The Abyss Table is handmade in London from sustainable materials, and it’s limited to 25 editions.
