Christopher Duffy of Duffy London designed the Abyss Desk, a dialog piece as a lot as a useful one. However whereas the earlier works of the studio play with gravity, this new design is worried with depth, and creates a geological cross-part as mesmerizing as the ocean. The challenge workforce spent a yr creating the desk of their London workplace, experimenting with sculpted glass, Perspex and wooden, organized like a three-D illustration of a geological map, till they recreated one thing of the hypnotizing abyss that had first captured Duffy´s creativeness.
Designer Christopher Duffy poetically explains his imaginative and prescient: I used to be wanting into sheets of thick glass at my glass producer´s manufacturing unit, and observed how the fabric darkened as they added extra layers â the identical means the ocean does because it deepens. I needed to make use of this impact to duplicate an actual piece of the earth´s sea mattress. Like a legendary energy had lifted an ideal rectangle straight from the earth´s crust to make use of as his private decoration. The Abyss Desk is handcrafted to order in London from sustainable supplies, and restricted to an version of 25. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Duffy London]
