Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"It goes on forever—and—oh my God!—it’s full of stars!"
ARTHUR C. CLARKE

With its glass table balancing miraculously on top of toppling monoliths, Duffy London’s mind-boggling creation appears to defy the laws of physics by remaining in a permanent state of impending collapse.
The monolithic design takes its inspiration from The Sentinel, a book by Arthur C. Clarke that went on to be made into the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, directed by Stanley Kubrick.

This product is handmade to order by local artisans and in-house craftsmen, using ethically sourced materials, so please allow 8 - 12 weeks for delivery.

Artist Profile

Hometown: London

Based in: London

Christopher Duffy founded Duffy London in 2002 while working as a part-time furniture buyer after graduating from the University of Brighton with a BA in Product Design. Having grown out of the kitchen some time ago, Chris and the Duffy London team are now based out of a studio in Victoria Dock. East London.

Duffy London's designs are ideas-based, combining art and function, and playing with the concepts of gravity, geography and optical illusion. Chris works with a talented team of designers, artisans, and manufacturers to turn these concepts into high-quality pieces of luxury bespoke furniture and artistic sculpture.

All works are handmade to order in the London studio by a skilled team of craftspeople using sustainable wood from Forestry Stewardship Council managed forests and other eco-friendly materials and mediums.

Works are divided into six main collections - Abyss, Solo / Sculptural, Megalith, Up! Balloon, Swing and Meeting Pod. In 2019, a limited edition of the Abyss Table was acquired by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs at The Louvre in Paris to become part of the permanent National collection.

Chris's designs have featured at Art Basel & Art Miami and 100% Design London. In 2016 Duffy London was the partner for the PAD London 20th Century Design and Decorative Arts Fair. Duffy London pieces have been acquired by Sylvester Stallone, Miley Cyrus, and The Weekend, as well as companies including Google, Hudson Yards and Four Season's Hotels.

Chris and the studio are constantly exploring new mediums along with the latest cutting-edge techniques, as part of their ongoing mission to apply innovative modern design to the world of furniture and sculpture.
