Abyss Dining Table by Duffy London

Duffy London

With multiple layers of stacked glass and wooden slices, Duffy London has built the Abyss Dining Table, replicating the dramatic depths of an indigo ocean. The design creates a geological cross-section of the sea, completing the dining table as a 3-dimensional model of a geological map.

“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,” explains Christopher Duffy, founder of Duffy London.


The design team spent a year developing the table in their London studio, experimenting with sculpted glass, Plexiglass and wood, arranged like a 3-D representation of a geological map, until they re-created something of the mesmeric abyss that had first captured Duffy’s imagination.

The Abyss Dining Table is limited to 25 editions and is available for purchase at £ 28,500 GBP (approximately $41000 USD).
