Ping pong tables seem to be having a moment. What was once a gaming set-up hidden away in the basement for the occasional game or two around holidays when family get-togethers run rampant and often, is now taking the front seat in office design. I even took a spin on a concrete version being shown at last week’s ICFF. The You and Me table is the perfect solution for those offices looking for a completely functional work space with a “members only” way to solve all of those tough corporate decisions over an after hours game of ping pong.
The table—thoughtfully designed by the Antoni Pallejá Office for RS Barcelona—features a discrete side drawer that houses the paddles, balls and net. When it’s closed, there’s no trace of the table’s alternative—and I’m willing to bet, more popular—use.
The table looks great; there isn’t any of the inherent “sportiness” or frat house style that usually comes with the less presentable plywood versions. Of course, the table wasn’t designed specifically for the office—or the indoors at that—but the idea of pulling out the fixings once Friday comes to a close is too tempting an image to not throw out there. It comes in white or black and is built to withstand the outdoors. You can check out more from Antoni Pallejá Office here.

Chicago-based artist Alex Solis has illustrated a series titled ‘Famous Chunkies’, depicting several pop-culture characters as obese individuals.
