Talk about net gains. RS Barcelona's dual-purpose ping pong table tops out in this luxe wooden version. With full-range playability, this standard-size playing surface instantly turns into a stupendous dining or conference table with a mere flick of the net. No one will be the wiser with the net, paddles and balls stashed out of sight in a hidden side drawer. From Barcelona-based designer Antoni Pallejà and his partner Júlia Polbach, who backstop their amusing sense of versatility with the promise of assured hand craftsmanship from their family-run company with a more than 40-year history in contemporary design. Walnut or oak finish suggested for indoor use only.

“It’s about generating smiles.” Not the usual business plan, but for RS Barcelona it’s a premise that’s made the brand a head-turning standout with its 2unconventional modernist home decor and furnishings. First begun as a small family-owned metal workshop in 1975, Rafael Rodríguez Castillo had a bigger dream for his business. Joined by his 2 sons, they caught the creative bug and wanted to design and produce their own products and show them to the world.
A certain metal foosball table—in quirky but also practical weatherproof bold colors—set them on their way. With that initial success, the company turned a corner and now is continually searching out young and imaginative talents from the new generation of designers for future collaborations. All because the RS Barcelona team says they enjoy seeing things in a different light. “It's about feeling good and surrounding yourself with the things you like. To never stop playing and learning.”
