designer christopher duff uses multiple layers of stacked glass and wooden slices, creating ‘the abyss table’, replicating the dramatic depths of an indigo ocean. the design creates a topography cross-section of the sea, completing the table as a 3-dimensional model of a geological map. ‘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.’ designer christopher duffy describes ‘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.‘ traditional to the design studio’s aesthetic, the furniture piece acts as both a conversation piece as much as it does a functional one.
