Abyss Dining Table
Let’s get deep people; here comes another abyss table from Duffy London, this time a dining table. “AND WHEN YOU GAZE LONG INTO AN ABYSS, THE ABYSS ALSO GAZES INTO YOU.” that’s deep! Not just the sentence, but also many aspects of table such as the price! £28,500.00 for a table made of glass, Plexiglas and Wood? I’ll let you decide if your pocket is deep enough.
Duffy London founder, Christopher Duffy, a 2002 Product Design graduate (BA) from the university of Brighton, started his work by creating products in his kitchen, and now owns a studio in East London. He is a skilled designer who uses concepts such as gravity, illusion, and geometry to produce both artistic and functional artworks. Note that his products are hand made by team of designers, artisans and manufacturers (Maybe that’s why it is so expensive!)
The table’s design reminds me of a geological cross-section that indicates depth of the seas. It took the design team a year to create this awesome dining table, as amazing as the coffee table version. If I was a child I would become a pirate by this amazing design. Just give me two ships and the game is on.
I really understand this though: If it’s about the deep sea, then why did light sources of the table illuminate from the deepest part of the topographic map? But the lights could serve as a good secondary function to this dinning table: It can be used as a light table for drafting! Another part that I disagree with is the leg of the table, that dark rectangular cube in the middle. I would prefer the coffee table design that reaches the floor.
Let’s get to the details: it is made from High grade wood found mainly in the Forest Stewardship Council managed forests. If you want this table, you will have to wait for about 16-20 weeks for delivery!
