Discover Abyss Horizon by Christopher Duffy with us today! The amazing ocean cover of this coffee table will inspire you for surfing more creative ideas for your living room design.
In 2002, founder Christopher Duffy, a design graduate from the University of Brighton made his humble beginning creating products in his kitchen. Having grown out of the kitchen a long time ago, Duffy London now perform their furniture-making wizardry in a spacious studio in east London.
“Abyss Horizon” is the latest coffee table from design studio, Duffy London. Continuing their theme of tables that simulate the dramatic depths of the ocean, Abyss Horizon measures 110 cm wide and 47 cm tall and is made from sculpted glass, Perspex, and wood.
This autumn, Duffy casts an eye downwards – looking to the depths of the ocean to dream up a dramatic new coffee table, that introduces the majesty of the big blue to the interior… As well as servicing you with somewhere impressive to put your cup of tea.
“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.” – Christopher Duffy.
Like all of Duffy’s designs, the Abyss Table is a conversation piece as much as a functional one.
But while previous works play with gravity, this new design is concerned with depth and creates a geological cross-section as mesmerising as the sea.
The design team spent a year developing the table in their London studio, experimenting with sculpted glass, resin 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.
The Materials used for this amazing table is high grade wood from Forest Stewardship Council managed forests, glass and other controlled sources.
Duffy London’s designs are ideas-based, combining art and function and playing with the concepts of gravity, geometry and illusion.
The innovative and quirky designs spring from the mind of Christopher Duffy, however, he also draws from his talented team of designers, artisans and manufacturers to turn these concepts into quality pieces.
Let this wonderful, charming table bring you the spirit of ocean and eternity. Hope you enjoyed the article and find some new color style for your new coffee table ideas.
