UP Balloon Tables by Duffy London

March 16th, 2015 by retail design blog

This uplifting design was conjured up by Christopher Duffy, working with the concept of levitation and buoyancy. The UP Balloon Table is a playful trompe l’oeil, giving the impression of a glass table top being suspended by gold and silver balloons. The UP Balloon Tables are limited to 20 editions.

Christopher Duffy was born in east London, and founded his studio there in 2002, after studying Product Design at University of Brighton. He now heads up a design company that has furnished thousands of homes as well as Google, Media studios and Royal Palaces with imaginative furniture that has whimsy as its hallmark, and quality and craftsmanship as its foundation. His acclaimed designs have included the Abyss Table (2014), the Swing Table (2008), the Shadow Chair (2008) and the Glo Canvas (2002) instantly recognisable pieces that have become icons of fantastical modern design. Duffy lives by the Thames, and dreams up his ideas in a flat just about big enough for one of his smallest designs.
