Comments Off on Mesmerizing Abyss Horizon table recreates the oceans dramatic depths

Unlike Duffy London’s previous iterations, the Abyss Horizon is circular rather than rectangular. This table, in addition to being a striking conversation starter, is made to order and handcrafted by local artisans and in-house craftsmen. The layers of cut glass create the illusion of a bottomless sinkhole in the center of a table. The light-colored wood that surfaces at the top mimic islands and landforms with sandy white beaches and aquamarine waters. Related: Amazing Abyss Table Layers Glass and Wood to Mimic the Depths of the Ocean Blue The Abyss Horizon Table is limited to 25 editions and can be made and delivered within 12 to 14 weeks. Price is available upon request. “‘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,” said Christopher Duffy about his inspiration behind the Abyss tables. “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.” The Abyss Horizon is available to view through the Sarah Myerscough Gallery . + Duffy London Images via Duffy London

Comments Off on Lodovico Bernardi’s Minimalist Folding Table Can Be Stored Almost Anywhere

Lodovico Bernardi ’s small plywood table takes the concept of foldable furniture to its extreme! The elegant table, which is made from a single piece of plywood, is ultra-thin when turned sideways so it can be stored discretely in ones home. In fact, it is thin enough to fall—if you’re not careful—through the gap between the elevator car and the wall of the elevator shaft.
