London-based furniture design company Duffy London has created the gorgeous Abyss Dining Table to bring nautical wonders into any modern home interior. Inspired by nature, the incredible piece of furniture uses multiple layers of glass and wood to create three-dimensional representation of endless depths of an indigo ocean.
Just like the layers of ocean, the tabletop is created with the sheets of thick glass to resemble dramatic deep blue water depths. Meanwhile, the base this made from wooden slices that are stacked to replicate a real piece of earth’s bed. Combination of layered glass and wood materials, create a geological cross-section as mesmerizing as the natural sea.
Even lights are integrated into the table to make the layered surface glow from within, as if natural rays of sun have touched the earth’s crust beneath the ocean. Plus, the light effect also helps the onlooker to clearly witness each and every layer being formed within this ocean replica.
Christopher Duffy, designer and founder of Duffy London, explains,
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.
Measuring 79-inches in length, 39-inhces in width, and 30-inches in height, the piece of furniture is good enough to be an attractive dining table that you’d certainly never want to keep away from your sight.
This natural-looking seascape furniture will be a focal point of any contemporary home. Although it is a dining table, but you’ll definitely lose yourself while gazing at the virtual ocean depths. The table is limited to only 25 pieces. So, you can order now to purchase the limited edition Abyss Dining Table for £28,500 (approx. US $41,000) per unit.
