The ABYSS Table: Gazing into the Depts of the Ocean

The ABYSS Table: Gazing into the Depts of the Ocean

As soon as we saw the ABYSS table, our heart skipped a beat. It was love at first sight.

β€œAND WHEN YOU GAZE LONG INTO AN ABYSS, THE ABYSS ALSO GAZES INTO YOU.” – FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE

Christopher Duffy looked into the depths of the ocean to dream up this dramatic new table that fuses ethically-sourced high-grade wood with glass.

The design team of Duffy London spent a year experimenting with sculpted glass, Perspex and wood arranged like a 3-D geological map until they brought Christopher Duffy’s imagination to form.

Duffy London, founded by Christopher Duffy in 2002, is a bespoke design company that likes to have fun with design, whether it’s creating illusions with objects or simply designing original, life-enhancing products.

They have used their wizardry again to create the ABYSS. More of an artistic sculpture than a table — it’s sure to be a conversation starter!

Hand made, there will only be 25 editions to this table so if it catches your heart (like it did ours) and you have a fairly deep wallet (retailing at £5,800), you need to get in quick. For more info on the ABYSS, check out Duffy London’s website.

If you do get your hands on an ABYSS table, be sure to invite us around for a cup of tea as we are dying to see it in person!

In the meantime, we’ll just stare into these photos all day, dreaming of being out at sea…

  1. This is amazing! Such an engaging table. Would love to have one but I don’t think I’d put my cup of tea down on it.

  2. I so want this! Such a clever idea, definitely a conversation starter
