The Pingtuated Equilibripong Table is inspired by the theory of Punctuated Equilibrium in which evolution of a species is viewed as brief, impressive periods of evolutionary change. Thus, the intention behind this unique and revolutionary table tennis set is that it could potentially change the face of the game.

Designed by Axel Yberg of Akke Functional Art, the Pingtuated Equilibripong Table is constructed out of reclaimed products such as plumbing pipes, aircraft wire and Edison reproduction light bulbs. The result is an industrial-looking piece of furniture that also conveniently converts into a dining table. By doing so, the Pingtuated Equilibripong Table introduces this fun game into the home more easily.

The Pingtuated Equilibripong Table also introduces a unique way to use the ball and paddles.
