The designer from London Christopher Duffy (ChristopherDuffy) created a bright art object for the interior - a glass coffee table, as if carved right out of the earth's crust somewhere in the sea. The original "sea" table was called The Abyss, which translates as "Abyss". How can you not remember Nietzsche: "And if you look long into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you." It is very difficult to tear your eyes from this work. The fragment of the ocean floor in the scale of the coffee table is the contact of the great with the small, and this is just using ordinary materials. The designer noticed that the layers of blue glass stacked on each other give an effect of depth, as if in a real ocean or a pond. This method was the starting idea when a glass coffee table was created. Layers of panels from hard wood and layers of bluish glass were laid in such a way as to form a relief of the seabed with depressions and lagoons somewhere near the sandy shore. The designer team spent about a year,experimenting with glass, plexiglas and wood, placing layers in a three-dimensional view of the geological map. The result has surpassed all expectations! It seems that it is impossible to put a cup on a glass coffee table, because it immediately drowns in the sea depths ... Glass top in the form of a blue water surfaceperfect for decorative tables, but here in the kitchen is unlikely to pass the test for strength and functionality. After all, the working surfaces play an important role in the kitchen environment. Modern manufacturers make countertops of high quality artificial stone, for example, like here.
