Designer Tom Burr has created a Limited Edition $45,000 ping pong table for Neiman Marcus. The table, which appears in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Catalogue, is made of rubber and is Burr’s attempt to make a ping pong table modern art.
Burr said of the design, “I like the notion of rubber. It has low-key glamour, like that of a sports car’s bumpers and guards. And, quite simply, rubber makes the balls bounce—more bounce for your buck.” But let’s be honest, a rubber ping pong table, this is a total tossup in terms of game play, but you’re not buying a $45,000 ping pong table because it plays well.
There are only 10 tables in the world and $2,500 of each table will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which I guess makes the price tag ever so slightly more agreeable.
