Play table
a transformative surface that supports diverse play

Strol x cloudandco presents Play table — a modern ping pong table that departs from single-purpose furniture and traditions. 
The Play table is not just a ping pong table. It entertains in many ways, but it still feels like a table. The dimensions were adjusted to fit homes rather than recreational spaces, and was retrofitted with a diverse range of accessories to support different modes of lifestyles.

The magnetic rope net serves as a beautiful centerpiece. It locks in magically, and at the end of each play, it is easily removed, and quickly stowed away in the hidden compartment. Instantly, everything is out of sight. The empty space powers the inquisitive mind, allowing room for new modes of applications. Conversations naturally flow for post-game snacks or a robust dinner. Or if time calls for work, the table can immediately provide a space to focus. Invisible, but the surface is powered by a long-distance wireless charger, and the sliding top offers a hidden compartment, including a power strip, cable organizer and plenty of space to stow anything away.

These functions are intuitive and founded by quality material, craftsmanship and detail. The table top is made of solid birch and topped with high density HPL, and the sides are finished with an intricate 8mm cut of maple. The legs are satin-finish aluminum extrusions mounted on quality steel castors, allowing the table for ease of movement when needed.

The racket is another objectification of the modern ping pong experience. The form was pared down to carry on the language of the Play table.
The magnetic net          The net was reimagined as a delicate fabric line, held firmly in place by tubular magnetic posts made of anodized aluminum. 
the subtleties of quality materials
The solid birch tabletop is finished off by bonding 8mm sheets of maple on the sides, and the extruded aluminum legs are refined by custom-made casters, allowing for ease of movement. 
The charger mounts underneath your surface of choice — it is capable of up to 30mm of long distance charging.
The idea was to create a modern ping pong table for everyone. A furniture instilled with the playful DNA of table tennis, but for the home. The Play table is neither traditional, stagnant nor a massive, single-purpose tool. Rather, it was imagined as an object that melts into the modern home, offering serenity and function. You don’t have to be a pro table tennis player to have a good time — that’s the spirit of the Play table.
