British design studio Duffy London makes creative and unusual furniture items inspired by the concept of gravity, geometry, and illusion. The UP! Balloon table and the Abyss table are their most famous creations. Based on the original balloon table, the very creative Christopher Duffy and Dario Costa have designed Balloon Table (Balance) with a toughed glass top resting on a foil balloon, creating a very realistic optical illusion of sorts.
Made using the latest large-scale 3D printing technology, it is a limited edition table, only 25 units will be made available. The Balloon Table (Balance) consists of three parts – a clean marble or stainless steel base, round glass tabletop and a shiny balloon in the center defying rules of nature. It is really unbelievable to see a single balloon supporting a huge glass tabletop.
There are different choices for the balloon and the base to match your style. Balloon Table (Balance) – a playful interpretation of buoyancy and balance – starts at £7,800 ($10,196).
