As we roll into Christmas here is something I wouldn’t mind finding under my tree. Designed by Ryan Vanderbilt, Table&Tennis is the culmination of an idea to merge sleek design with a conference/dining table and – here’s the awesome part – build it to the official specs of a ping pong table. It even comes equipped with a discreet drawer below to store the removable net, racquets and balls.
It goes without saying the kind of pleasure which can be had with an immediate game of ping pong following an arduous business meeting. Vanderbilt’s dual table really does underscore how work and play have blended together; and with that, the more functional the better. A staff meeting, then dinner and then a game of table tennis – all on one beautifully-designed table? Yes, please. [via trends now]
