The UP Coffee Table by Christopher Duffy

Category: Design Published on 06 Dec, 2012 Tags: , , , ,

Working with the illusion of levitation and buoyancy, the UP coffee table designed by london-based designer Christopher Duffy is a playful trompe l’oeil, giving the impression that a piece of glass is being suspended by small balloons. This table is a limited edition of twenty, hand made in the UK, and designed without compromise to manufacturing processes, and so are extremely time consuming to create.
