Not so long ago we wrote about the beautiful river- and lake-like desks by Greg Klassen, and today we have a similar but not less stunning layered glass table design by Duffy London – the Abyss table, which is created in a way that mimics the depths of the oceans. This unique table uses multiple layers of stacked glass and wood, completing the table as a three-dimensional representation of a geological map. The images are only digital renderings but we can see that the real piece will be truly amazing.
The designer Christofer Duffy explains to Design Boom how he came up with the idea for his amazing design: “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 deepen and 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“.
