Clerkenwell Design Week highlights: Duffy London

Contemporary-British-Furniture-Design-07

As part of our Clerkenwell Design Week highlights feature we look at some of the brands that were on showcase during the London event. Today we bring you British furniture brand, Duffy London

Established 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 perform their furniture-making wizardry in a spacious studio in east London.

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.

We love the “Swing table” and “Up coffee table”.

UP coffee table

‘Growing old is compulsory, growing UP is optional.’ Bob Monkhouse

This uplifting design was conjured up by master illusionist Chris Duffy, working with the concept of levitation and buoyancy. The UP coffee table is a playful trompe l’oeil, giving the impression of a glass table top being suspended by golden balloons.

The Up dining table

Let the UP dining table lift your mood and raise your spirits.

The UP dining table is a playful trompe l’oeil. Working with the concept of levitation and buoyancy, the glass tabletop is suspended by shiny gold and silver balloons. This table will never cease to amaze and impress, giving a celebratory feel to any dinner or board meeting, and adding that bit of creative inspiration to the conversation.
