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.
