ping-pong dining table harks back to the origins of table-tennis with its duality of both
being
a table fit for dining and playing on. what started
off as impromptu after-dinner amusement
mimicking tennis in an indoor
environment for upper-class victorians became an
international
phenomenon with rules and standards. this is an
official-sized game table with a
DuPont™ Corian® surface CNC machine-routed with french rococo patterns interjected
ping-pong iconography filled with gold lacquer, supported by stately hand-lathed
timber legs.
in the
middle, a long rectangular vase filled with dainty blossoms does double-duty
as
a game-net and a table floral arrangement.

reinstating grandeur and pomp with neo-classical inspired embellishments ,
the ping-pong dining table creates a remarkable conceptual statement
in the true heart of the home, the dining area.
