Into the Abyss


Some days your mind feels restless, and not of the creative or productive type. Some days you sit at your desk for hours and can't seem to gather your thoughts. Some days you wish not to be here and somewhere else, staring into the depth of the ocean blue - its serene tranquility calms and reassures like nothing else can. 

"AND WHEN YOU GAZE LONG INTO AN ABYSS, THE ABYSS ALSO GAZES INTO YOU.” - so said the philosopher FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE. It became the inspiration for the design team at Duffy London to craft this striking for beautiful Abyss table. It mimicks the depth of the sea with stacked layers of wood and glass.

Founder Christopher Duffy says, "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. Like a mythical power had lifted a perfect rectangle straight from the earth’s crust to use as his personal ornament."
