duffy london has created a series of tables that mislead eyes to question how gravity works. the ‘megalith’ series comes in both coffee and dining table sizes, and the monolithic design takes its shape from ‘the sentinel’, a book by arthur c. clarke that went to be made into a cult classic film 2001: a space odyssey, directed by stanley kubrick. the glass table top balances above toppling monoliths, which appear frozen in a permanent state of imminent collapse.
