"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.

In 2002, founder Christopher Duffy, a design graduate from the University of Brighton, made his humble beginning creating products in his kitchen.
Having grown out of the kitchen a long time ago, Duffy London now performs their furniture-making wizardry in a spacious studio in east London.
Duffy London’s designs are ideas-based, combining art and function and playing with the concepts of gravity, geometry and illusion.
The innovative and quirky designs spring from the mind of Christopher Duffy, however, he also draws from his talented team of designers, artisans and manufacturers to turn these concepts into quality pieces.
Boasting strong eco-credentials, everything is handmade to order by skilled craftspeople in the UK, using sustainable wood and other eco-friendly materials and mediums.
Duffy London’s most acclaimed design is the Abyss Table, a creative replica of a piece of the earth’s seabed, which has been acquired by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and in Autumn 2019 became part of its permanent national collection.
Other noteworthy designs are the Shadow Chair, that appears to defy gravity by standing on only two legs.
The incredible UP Tables, which are a playful trompe l’oeil, giving the impression of a glass tabletop being suspended by balloons.
There is the delightful Swing Table, which will transport you back to your childhood.
