woodsman axe table by duffy london chops through the surface

 

duffy london plays with the concepts of gravity, geometry and illusion in their series of product designs. their ‘woodsman axe table’ combines art and function as four mirror polished hickory axes act as the surface’s legs. based on the brothers grimm fairy tale ‘little red riding hood’, the repurposed elements cut through the natural wooden surface they sit beneath, appearing to be chopping through a fallen tree.
