Get Inspired By The Abyss Wall Collection From Duffy LondonTuesday 9 July 2019
Duffy casts an eye into the ancient depths of the ocean, to dream up a dramatic Wall Sculpture, creating an Abyssal art piece that instantly puts you in mind to stories of ships falling off the edge of the World, introducing the majesty of the deep blue to the interior, and an Abyss that gazes back. The Abyss Wall is handmade to order in London from sustainable materials and limited to an edition of 25. CovetED loved this collection and is here to let you know all about this Abyss Wall collection, made of sustainable products.
In 2002, founder Christopher Duffy, a design graduate from the University of Brighton, made his humble beginning creating products in his kitchen. Having grown out of the kitchen a long time ago, Duffy London now performs their furniture-making wizardry in a spacious studio in east London. Duffy London’s designs are ideas-based, combining art and function and playing with the concepts of gravity, geometry and illusion. The innovative and quirky designs spring from the mind of Christopher Duffy, however, he also draws from his talented team of designers, artisans and manufacturers to turn these concepts into quality pieces.
Boasting strong eco-credentials, everything is handmade to order by skilled craftspeople in the UK, using sustainable wood and other eco-friendly materials and mediums. Duffy London’s most acclaimed design is the Abyss Table, a creative replica of a piece of the earth’s seabed. Other noteworthy designs are the Shadow Chair, that appears to defy gravity by standing on only two legs. The incredible UP Tables, which are a playful trompe l’oeil, giving the impression of a glass tabletop being suspended by balloons. There is the delightful Swing Table, which will transport you back to your childhood.
Duffy casts an eye downwards – looking to the depths of the ocean to dream up a dramatic new coffee table, that introduces the majesty of the big blue to the interior… As well as servicing you with somewhere impressive to put your cup of tea. Like all of Duffy’s designs, the Abyss Table is a conversation piece as much as a functional one. But while previous works play with gravity, this new design is concerned with depth and creates a geological cross-section as mesmerising as the sea.
The UP Balloon Dining Table
The UP Balloon Table is a playful trompe l’oeil, the gold and silver balloons impress the illusion of a levitating glass tabletop. This piece captures the imagination and celebrates nostalgic creativity. This uplifting design was imagined by Christopher Duffy, with the concept of levitation and buoyancy.
Bring the playground into the boardroom or dining room with the Swing Table. Snap your staff or dinner guests out of the doldrums; meetings or dinners will become a fun and inspiring experience. A Geo lampshade and the hanging chairs are suspended from the four-poster frame around the tabletop. This playful design will delight and inspire and it makes vacuuming a breeze!
